The Chapter provides opportunities for individuals, groups and businesses. We match volunteers’ interests and skills with available roles at each of our six offices. In some cases, volunteers are able to assist from the comfort of their home. Illinois Chapter volunteers assist with the Alzheimer’s Association Community Representative program (AACR), Advocacy, ALZ Stars, Bankers Life Forget Me Not Days, General Office, Helpline, Illinois Action Summit, Special Event/Day of Event, Special Events Committee, Support Group Facilitator, Veterans Advisory Committee, and our signature events Walk To End Alzheimer’s and The Longest Day.
In order to become a volunteer at the Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter, we request that volunteers create a profile. This will help to inform us of your volunteer interests and availability. At the Chapter, we strive to make your volunteer experience the most rewarding. If you have a specific skill or if you are bilingual, we will work with you to determine the best volunteer position within our organization. Please learn more about each of our volunteer opportunities and create a volunteer profile. We look forward to speaking with you in the near future.
