Volunteers Help Us Help Our Families

The Alzheimer’s Association counts on 35,000 volunteers nationwide to help fulfill our mission. Please consider joining us to help support the 72,000 families in Colorado who are faced with Alzheimer’s disease.

Now is a great time to volunteer at the Association and we provide the training!

Whether you have one hour to spend with us or a few hours each week, we can find the right fit for your interest and skills. Volunteer opportunities are available at each of our seven offices in Colorado Springs, Denver, Durango, Fort Collins, Grand Junction, Greeley and Pueblo, and in some cases you can volunteer from the comfort of your own home computer.

Please contact our Volunteer Program Manager by calling 303.813.1669 or email volunteer@alzco.org to fill out an application and schedule your orientation.
