AARP offers internship opportunities in a wide array of areas for undergraduates, graduates and post graduates. Start your career journey at AARP to gain meaningful experience, interact with a diverse group of team members and participate in challenging and rewarding work.
AARP Internships offer a combination of on-the-job training and an introduction to AARP’s culture and values. Interns are a valuable member of the AARP team from day one and contribute significantly to organizational initiatives that advance our strategic mission and vision.
Internships are available throughout the organization, including our National Office in Washington, D.C. and our offices located in the states and U.S. Territories. AARP offers internships to students who are currently enrolled in degree seeking programs. Non-traditional internships are also available for returning professionals currently enrolled in a college course. Summer internships typically last 8-12 weeks. Year round internships can extend up to 12 months.
A great network is in place to make sure interns have access to varied learning and development opportunities. The AARP Intern Speaker Series provides a platform to hear directly from our leaders on a broad range of issues. Some past topics include Strategy & Innovation at AARP, the Role of Millennials in Disrupting Aging and Tools for Developing Your Career.
“After quite a few years as a stay-at-home mom, caregiver, volunteer and freelance writer, I had about given up the idea that I could re-enter the workplace at my age! AARP has reinvigorated my sense of purpose - and it’s been so much fun. Thank you AARP!”
“I believe that working for purpose and changing the world is far greater than any other opportunity.”
“Interning with AARP over the summer has given me a whole new perceptive about the company. The open and collaborative culture has provided learning opportunities for me across the organization.”
“It has been extremely gratifying to witness how the work we do at AARP impacts our communities as a whole in such a positive way.”
“I am so fortunate to be around such interesting and creative people.”
