You can make it happen…
a world without
Alzheimer's disease


You can make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's and related dementias just by giving a few hours of time. In fact, volunteers are the lifeblood of the Alzheimer's Association. Some 35,000 volunteers nationwide work with us to achieve our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease while optimizing quality of life for people who are affected by Alzheimer's. Whether you can volunteer a couple of hours a week or make a more significant time commitment, we hope you will consider joining this very special community.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact Jody Wills by phone at 949.426.8544 or by email at jwills@alz.org.

Ways to Volunteer

Administrative Office Volunteers 
As a member of the administrative volunteer team, you’ll help input data, update resources and referrals, organize and prepare materials for conferences, special events and Helpline packets, and aid in the overall workflow of a chapter office. This encompasses making copies, organizing mailings, data entry and more. We offer weekday opportunities with a minimum commitment of four hours per week.

Speaker's Bureau
Represent and promote the Alzheimer’s Association through presentations and at events. Presentations can range from as little as three minutes to full two-hour trainings. Speaker's Bureau volunteers may also distribute information and brochures at health fairs and employee giving drives. These volunteers need access to reliable transportation and should be willing and able to travel in local areas.

Outreach--Engage the Community
Promote Alzheimer’s awareness and education at health fairs, conferences and community events. Staff exhibit tables, distribute information and answer basic questions about chapter services.

Patient Care and Family Support
Make a difference by working with support groups, assisting in resource information research and database management, and/or providing information and referrals via telephone and email. Our programs department provides resources, support and clinical consultation to those affected by Alzheimer’s, families and professionals.

Walk to End Alzheimer's--Join the Committee
Do you want to be part of the largest movement against Alzheimer’s disease in the country? Volunteer with Walk to End Alzheimer’s as a member of our volunteer committee, and you’ll help plan and execute the event, assisting with anything from publicity and team recruitment to logistics and securing sponsorship. Or, be a part of the team of volunteers that makes the walk happen on the day of the event, from setup to tear down!

The Longest Day--Join the Task Force
The Longest Day is all about love. Love for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease. On the summer solstice, thousands will be participating in this signature event by doing an activity that they love--or an activity loved by those affected--to help end Alzheimer's. Join our task force to help us extend our reach and encourage others to raise millions to honor those facing Alzheimer's.
