Business Unit Description

Older Adults Technology Services from AARP (OATS) advocates for technology inclusion for the 50+, providing digital literacy training and programming to older adults.

Summary

This part-time position is a unique opportunity for a passionate individual to work with OATS to empower older adults by helping them thrive in the digital world and harness technology to achieve their personal goals.
