Community Educators

Community Educators are volunteer public speakers who help Alzheimer's Association raise awareness, provide education and expand the reach of educational offerings in the community.  These volunteers deliver presentations using prepared training materials on topics related to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. 

Support Group Facilitators 

Support Group Facilitators create a safe, open environment where people share their feelings, thoughts and experiences in a combined effort to better cope with and manage the shared problems of dementia. We offer support groups for caregivers and those in the early-stages of Alzheimer’s or other dementias.

Community Representatives

Community Representatives connect with local groups such as business and civic organizations, neighborhoods, rural counties, or faith communities to raise awareness and share information about Alzheimer’s disease, free resources offered through the Alzheimer’s Association, and the many ways to join our cause at local community and education events.

Early-Stage Social Engagement Leaders

Early Stage Social Engagement Leaders plan, implement and assure positive experience during social engagement events/activities for people living with memory loss.

Alzheimer’s State Champions

Join our Advocacy Team and share your unique perspective as a caregiver, person living with dementia, researcher, young person, etc. Advocacy volunteers cultivate multifaceted, year-round relationships with targeted state officials, raise awareness through local media, spark social media conversations, and coordinate events.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s Planning Committee

Committees are comprised of business and community leaders that use their organizational and networking skills to grow the movement to end Alzheimer’s disease. Each committee, led by an event chair and co-chair, include subcommittees that focus on team recruitment, sponsorship, team retention, marketing, advocacy, mission, and logistics. 

The Longest Day Planning Committee
