Our new volunteer recruiting season kicked off with a press release distributed to media outlets state wide, a recruiting announcement on the AARP Massachusetts website, plus a feature article in the AARP Massachusetts August 2018 email newsletter (that I’m sure many of you received). Please note that media outlets do not run every press release, so if you know someone in the media or your area needs more volunteers, you might consider contacting your local paper/news outlet to let them know there’s local interest.
Our best recruiting tool is always our existing cadre of volunteers – you can help by spreading the word. The link to sign up as a volunteer is http://www.aarpfoundation.org/taxaidevolunteer.
Schedules for new volunteer training vary by district, but typically are in either late October, November, or early December. We’ll start ordering training material around 1 October, with future orders every one to two weeks as new candidates volunteer. Training material should start arriving in mid November.
