About Mentor Up

Mentor Up is all about young people helping older adults stay connected and adjust to the many challenges they face in today’s changing world.

Between health concerns, economic problems and seemingly daily advances in technology, this is not the world that many older adults—grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, even parents-- thought they’d be living in at this point in their lives. The skills you have–in particular your technology skills–are skills the older generation wants to learn to get out, connect and avoid being left behind.

Mentor Up is a new way to make a difference from AARP Foundation. We’re here with tools and instruction to help young people make a meaningful difference in their communities. We can connect you with people and organizations that have ways for you to help, or even help you create your own community service event.
