Volunteer Your Time
The Alzheimerﾒs Association counts on 35,000 volunteers nationwide to help fulfill our mission. Our volunteers are passionate, inspired and want to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimerﾒs disease. Whether you can spare a few hours a month or are able to make a more significant time commitment, we can find the right fit for your interest and skills. The Alzheimer's Association Program Volunteer Community is a dedicated resource for our volunteers to learn, and expand the reach of our programs in their local communities.
Community Educators are volunteer speakers who help provide education and expand the reach of Alzheimer's Association programs. Community Educators deliver Alzheimer's Association programs on topics related to Alzheimer's disease and other dementias using prepared materials. These volunteers provide programs scheduled by Association staff and help identify potential community partners and education venues using their established community networks.
Community educators assure that the general public, caregivers and people living with Alzheimer's or dementia are linked to Alzheimer's Association programs and our free 24/7 Helpline. They are true partners with our staff and extend the reach of our programs to all communities.
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. These volunteers serve as liaisons between the Association and local groups such as neighborhoods, rural counties, business and civic organizations or faith communities. Community Representatives 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.
State and Federal Advocacy
Advocacy efforts focus on improving dementia care and services, increasing access to community-based care, enhancing the quality of care in residential settings and expanding funding for research and public programs.
Walk to End Alzheimerﾒs
Walk to End Alzheimerﾒs is the nationﾒs largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimerﾒs Association care, support and research programs.
