Our volunteers are passionate, inspired and want to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. Whether you can spare a few hours a week or make a more significant time commitment, please consider becoming an Alzheimer's Association volunteer. There are many ways to volunteer.

Volunteer Opportunities

We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to fit any interest and time commitment. This menu of opportunities includes our greatest volunteer needs—but if you have a special area of interest or talent to contribute that you don’t see listed below, contact us to tell us more.

Advocacy volunteers
If you feel passionate about the Alzheimer’s cause and want the world to know, you will make a great advocacy volunteer! You don’t have to be experienced in advocacy (we teach you that!) just a desire to become involved in policy. Advocates help us influence legislators and the Federal and State level by sending emails, writing letters and calling or visiting legislators. You can respond to action alerts from the comfort of your own home, attend advocacy events, visit legislators in home district offices and assist in the identifying of new advocates. Learn more about becoming an advocate now!

Community educators
Our community educators deliver programs developed by the Alzheimer’s Association using scripted curricula, PowerPoint presentations and other prepared training materials provided by the Association. All topics are related to Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias as well as the information that affected individuals and families need.

Community Representative
Alzheimer's Association Community Representatives are community engagers that raise awareness of Alzheimer's Association programs, provide basic disease information, and link consumers to Alzheimer’s Association services.

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 and their care partners. 

Support group volunteers:
If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity that gives you in-person contact with families that are coping with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, facilitating a support group might be a good fit for you. Our expertly trained support group leaders facilitate or co-facilitate support groups throughout our chapter for family members and caregivers seeking assistance, emotional support and information on all topics related to Alzheimer’s disease. The required time commitment varies from three to four hours on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis depending upon the specific support group assigned. Support group leader volunteers are required to make a minimum one-year commitment.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s volunteers:
Do you want to be a part of the largest movement against Alzheimer’s disease in the country? Volunteer with Walk to End Alzheimer’s as a member of our volunteer committee and you’ll help plan and execute the event, assisting with anything from publicity and team recruitment to logistics and securing sponsorship. Or, be a part of the team of volunteers that makes the walk happen on the day of the event, from setup to tear down! Learn more about a Walk to End Alzheimer’s near you.

If you are interested in volunteering, we would love to hear from you!
