Become a Volunteer
The Alzheimer's Association counts on some 35,000 volunteers nationwide. Help us achieve our vision of creating a world without Alzheimer's disease while optimizing quality of life for people who are affected by dementia-related disorders. Volunteer opportunities can accommodate a variety of interests and skills. Whether you can spare only a couple of hours a week or can make a more significant time commitment, we hope you will consider joining this very special community of people passionate about making a difference.
Volunteers are needed throughout the service territory for a variety of positions. We offer several volunteer opportunities to accommodate different interests and schedules.
During the month of August 2016, our generous volunteers donated 443.75 hours of their time, worth a total of $10,454.75!
