Are you a student with a social mission drive? Do you want to help protect our nation’s older population to stay safe from scams and fraud? Then Team Fraud Prevention is looking for you! Our team is focused on educating the public on scams and fraud to help them avoid becoming victims. Our co-team, Team Victim Support, is there to help people who have been targeted or victimized by a scam or fraud. We are a small and nimble team with a range of needs that we’d love your help with.
As an Intern, you will apply strategic, analytical and creative thinking to help with our core areas of internal and external communications, internal and external partnerships, and state relations (we have offices in all 53 states and territories that all engage in our “Fraud Watch Network”).
You’ll manage our fraud scam tracking map, help with our biweekly “Watchdog Alerts” that we send by email and text, and help with “promotional blitzes” where we focus on a specific type of scam and get the word out about it. You’ll get to attend industry events around town, and engage in internal and external meetings. As a side project, you’ll manage a Social Security Question and Answer tool, to help get our members’ questions about Social Security answered by our expert. You will learn a lot about this important program!
We’ll challenge you to think and work in new ways. We are committed to your growth and will cultivate your continued learning and development.
AARP also considers non-traditional interns who are looking to re-enter the workforce or change careers. This may include those who have previously graduated college and are now enrolled in a continuing education program.
Internships are non-exempt positions and are not eligible for employee benefits.
