Michael Olender and Leonardo Scarpati, both Associate State Directors of AARP North Carolina, were my special guests on Radio 4 the Ages today. Although these two gentlemen are assigned to North Carolina, the AARP efforts to improve the lives of all Americans, and specifically those 50+, were discussed this morning.
If you, like many others upon reaching the age of 50, go through the stages of grief that accompany that milestone, you should rejoice in your new found ability to join AARP! As Michael Olender put it, “…50 is now the new 25.” Volunteerism is a vital part of AARP’s efforts to involve the community in service. Their ‘Life Reimagined for Work’ program is an AARP resource, connected through LinkedIn, that connects older workers with companies who value the contributions of experienced workers. All you need is a most affordable membership to AARP to take advantage of all the many benefits available.
Michael and Leo discussed many AARP initiatives, including Livable Community Listening Sessions, Coffee and Conversation, Affordable Utilities Now and many more. It’s a far ranging conversation that clearly states the AARP message for improving quality of life for our 50+ Americans.
Whether you live in the Charlotte area, in South Carolina, or are listening anywhere in the United States, please visit the AARP web site to explore the wonderful information available there as well as the services and opportunities that AARP offers.
