Love to Meet People? Happy With our Programs?     We are seeking a passionate and energetic volunteer to assist with funeral home outreach. The goal of these visits is to cultivate relationships with funeral home directors and staff while making them aware of our appreciation and the value of memorial and tribute donations. We anticipate this volunteer making approximately 10 funeral home visits each month. This schedule can be adjusted based on the volunteer’s availability.  During visits the volunteer is expected to confirm contact information, offer gift envelopes, provide an overview of the Association, and encourage funeral home staff to discuss this giving option with their customers.


Do You Believe it Takes a Village to Make Lasting Change? Become a Marketing Intern or Communication Volunteer
We are seeking  friendly and outgoing interns or volunteers  to tackle a few projects that involve expanding our  marketing ability.  There are numerous education and training opportunities in the community that can help us provide families and professionals the awareness, education and support necessary to face  Alzheimer’s once it has become part of your life.  We need to build those relationships for everyone’s benefit.  A great attitude, basic computer and communication skills are necessary.

This is an unpaid internship that is built to serve the volunteer’s needs.  For students, we would work on a time frame suitable to your educational requirement.  This could be an ideal situation for a social work, public relations or marketing student interested in learning about dementia disease and how it impacts individuals and families.  This could also be an excellent volunteer assignment for someone who wishes to return to full time employment but has been absent from the work force for a while or is retired and wants a new challenge.

The work hours are flexible and training is provided. Some work may be done from home, although a considerable amount of time will also be spent in our office, located in Columbus, OH as well as making in person information sessions about our services.  Contact:  vmcgrail@alz.org
