Volunteering as a political advocate:

Helping families directly:

Please visit our special Program Volunteers Portal to learn more and apply.

Day of service (group volunteering):

  • If your company, school, or organization is interested in scheduling a day of service, please email volunteersmanh@alz.org. We would love to have you!

I'm not sure what I want to do!

  • If you're not sure, or if you're interested in multiple opportunities, just email volunteersmanh@alz.org. A chapter staff person will follow up to help you select a volunteer role that works best for you.
