Legal Counsel for the Elderly
March 18, 2011
AARP Legal Counsel for the Elder is one of the best volunteer experiences that I have ever had. As an undergrad, I was not entirely sure how an office functions in it's day to day life, but LCE was very welcoming and helped me adjust to a more professional lifestyle. Probably the best part of volunteering is reaching out to DC seniors and knowing that you are helping those in need. Although I volunteered in Outreach and Development, I was able to speak to and get to know many volunteers throughout LCE's different programs as well. Every conversation I've had with the volunteers and employees has been a good one, and I have learned something new every day.

Ways to make it better...

None that i can personally think of.
Volunteer & I contacted volunteers and asked for their thoughts about LCE, I searched for news articles to post to the Twitter and Facebook Page, and I helped plan events both inside and outside the office to help spread LCE's message to DC.
