About AARP

Through our members' collective wisdom and energy, AARP is doing amazing things to make life better for today's 50-plus population and generations that follow. In the face of constantly changing realities, AARP is a champion for social change. We help people navigate ageless realities — financial well-being, health, contributing to society and local communities, and enjoying life fully. It takes great people to deliver great results. To deliver on our promise to our members and our ambitious social agenda, AARP relies on a diverse, skilled, healthy, highly motivated, and committed workforce. To attract, inspire, and retain that workforce, AARP offers an environment that encourages their highest achievement. We offer various internship opportunities at both our state and national offices.


Communications and Research Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Washington, DC
“For a non-profit, AARP has so many resources. Their mission is admirable and the people who work there are extremely committed to it. Every person I met went above and beyond to make sure I felt supported and welcomed. They also have opportunities in so many departments. I met interns in advocacy, communications, research, data management, business development, digital design, and more. There's ample intern programming, so you meet fellow interns and are exposed to aspects of the business you may not see in your day-to-day. I highly recommend this internship to any student looking for exposure to a large company with a laudable mission. ”
