The group develops AARP’s annual communications priorities and serves as a hub for communications strategy for issues important to people 50 and older, such as Healthy Living, Caregiving, Savings & Planning and Work & Jobs.

The Communications Intern will support Strategy Directors and be exposed to all stages of the communications strategy process.
