We need your help in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.

The Alzheimer's Association counts on 35,000 volunteers nationwide to help fulfill our mission. The Alzheimer's Association relies on dedicated volunteers to achieve our vision of a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia. 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 can make a more significant time commitment, we can find the right fit for your interest and skills.

Volunteer Opportunities


Education and Program Volunteers

We seek committed, passionate volunteers to educate the public, lead support groups and provide social engagement to those living with early-stage Alzheimer's in all communities.

  • Community Educators are volunteer public speakers who help the Alzheimer's Association provide education. These volunteers deliver prepared presentations on topics related to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
  • Community Representatives raise awareness of our programs, provide basic information, and link consumers to services. They liaise between the Association and local business, civic or faith groups.
  • Support Group Facilitators create a safe, open environment where people share their feelings, thoughts and experiences to better cope with and manage the shared challenges of dementia. Mentors provide training and guidance for facilitators of early-stage or caregiver groups.
