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 more than 60,000 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.
We currently have the following volunteer opportunities available:
Training is provided to enable our help line counselors to assist callers with finding resources, and getting ideas to navigate the journey of being a caregiver for someone with Alzheimer's, or another dementing illness. Shifts are morning or afternoon, Monday through Friday. We ask for a commitment of 4 hours per week. Initial training will take 8+ hours per week for up to 3 weeks.
A Helpline volunteer answers calls at our Denver office.
We have an opportunity for a few talented videographers! Our immediate need is to provide video footage for the Alzheimer's Association's premier event -- The Walk to End Alzheimer's -- on September 17. Video footage will feed the Jumbotron at the event. Post production work will also be needed to produce a publicity piece for future walks.
Our need is also for a long-term volunteer videographer to be on hand for numerous events throughout the year.
