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.

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator by calling 303.813.1669 or email colovolunteer@alz.org to fill out an application and schedule your orientation.

We currently have the following volunteer opportunities available:

Memories in the Making Art Facilitator

You’ll assist with the coordination of this weekly watercolor painting program offered in care facilities for people with Alzheimer’s. Training is provided.

You’ll help coordinate, decorate, assist with registration, greet guests, and set up for Memories in the Making art auction, Reason to Hope luncheon/breakfast, and/or the Walk to End Alzheimer's (10 locations).
