Want to help harness the power of technology to change the way we age? Here are several ways you can get involved and support: leveraging technology to help seniors learn new skills, save money, exercise to get in shape, and make new friends.
Become a Supporter
We’re a distinctive, diverse community of people aged 60 and older who are busy changing the way we age by embracing opportunities to reshape our lives, connect with and help one another, and change the world for the better —all while learning, growing, and having fun! Join us for online classes or in-person to gain access to exclusive Supporter benefits. You do not need to be a Supporter to take our classes or use our space, but it is encouraged if you would like to deepen your Senior Planet experience.
Sign Up for Newsletters
There’s always a lot going on in the Senior Planet universe: life-changing technology courses being taught, provocative articles and profiles being published, lively real-world and online events gathering seniors together, and more. Sign up for our newsletters to make sure you never miss a thing!
Follow Us on Social Media
Senior Planet is a vibrant real-world community of thousands of real older adults around the country. But our online presence is humming too. Follow us on social media to meet like-minded seniors and join the conversation.
Volunteer with Us
If you are interested in volunteering in person at one of our Senior Planet centers, you can apply here! Volunteer opportunities include greeting visitors at the center, leading Tech Talks, and supporting as a class assistant.

Donate to Senior Planet
Senior Planet is the flagship program of Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) from AARP, an IRS 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible. Donations from people like you have been a continued source of funding for our programs. No amount is too small. Click the button below to donate right away on Click & Pledge (our external donation site), or click here to read about other ways to give.
Shop Amazon Smile
Do you shop on Amazon? Then you can help support Senior Planet! Just go to the Amazon Smile website (which has the same products and features as the regular Amazon site), except the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to Senior Planet! You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for Amazon Smile donation” on their product detail pages. And don’t worry, the donation from Amazon does not add to your purchase price! When you buy, the Foundation simply makes a donation directly to us at no cost to you.
