The AARP Information Center at 6700 N. Oracle Road opened its new offices in July 2004, having moved from its previous location on Broadway Avenue. The new offices provide a greater opportunity for AARP members, and seniors in general, to find information and services in Tucson and surrounding areas. The Arizona Attorney General established a satellite facility in our office in 2007; see the Services section.

In Late 2007, the Tucson Information Center was one of the first AARP branches to have the AARP Foundation's new WorkSearch program installed. Several of our volunteers have been trained in its operation. In it, the skills and interests of clients are entered into the computer and compared with a list of comparable jobs within a short distance of the client's zip (postal) code.  The client is taught how to access the free program on the internet and take short tests applicable to the work being sought.  Gaps in skill levels are pointed out, with suggestions how to improve them and, for a fee, a Jobs Skills Certificate can be earned from one of eight major educational institutions.  An appointment is necessary and availability to our computers will be on a first come, first served basis.
