Alzheimer's Association Community Representatives (AACRs) are community engagers that raise awareness of Alzheimer's Association programs, provide basic disease information, and link consumers to Alzheimer’s Association services. AACRs serve as liaisons between the Alzheimer's Association and local groups such as neighborhoods, rural counties, business and civic organizations or faith communities. AACRs represent the Alzheimer’s Association by sharing 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.
As a Community Representative, your role would be to staff tables at events and share information on our programs and services with visitors. Occasionally, you may be asked to make a short presentation about the organization.
Bilingual skills preferred, but not required (Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese).
Training on Alzheimer's Association mission, services, programs, Alzheimer's disease and dementia, as well as best outreach practices will be provided.
Outreach events are ongoing and include opportunities in the evening and on weekends.
