Support a world without Alzheimer’s
by volunteering with the
Alzheimer’s Association®

Our volunteers are passionate, inspired and want to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. By helping in our office a few hours a week, serving on an event planning committee, or in one of a number of other roles, you can impact the fight to end Alzheimer's disease.

Sign up to Volunteer online today!

As our volunteer program grows, new positions will become available and we welcome your ideas. For more information, contact Bernadette Duffy, volunteer manager, at 234.284.2749 or bduffy@alz.org.

Volunteers Needed! (Updated: October 23, 2017)

  • Walk to End Alzheimer's Planning Committees – Participate on a planning committee for one of our Walk to End Alzheimer's in Akron, Medina, Stark, Mahoning Valley, Trumbull, Muskingum, Tuscarawas and Wayne. We are looking for dynamic individuals with a passion for our cause to join the planning committees. The Walks take place in September and October and meetings will start in January. Planning meetings are held monthly. Responsibilities outside of the meetings can be tailored to your availability. 
     
  • Caregiver Support Group Co-Facilitator – Meeting on a monthly basis, we offer caregiver support groups across our chapter area to provide a consistent and caring place for discussion of the challenges of caregiving. We are currently seeking co-facilitators for the following areas: Brunswick, Minerva, Ravenna, Steubenville, Tallmadge, Wooster and Zanesville. (Find out more.) 
     
  • Health Fairs & Tabling Volunteers – Attend health fairs as a representative of the Alzheimer's Association and cultivate community relationships and share information about the disease and services we offer.
     
  • Alzheimer's Advocates – The policy successes in fighting Alzheimer’s, including the $400 million increase in research funding through the NIH this spring, would not be possible without our dedicated volunteer advocates. To ramp up our outreach and communication with Representative Bill Johnson’s office, representing Ohio’s 6th U.S. Congressional District, the Association is seeking interested advocates to attend local town halls and submit letters to the editor.
