African American Outreach Volunteer to Help End Alzheimer's

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


African-Americans are unfortunately at greater risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, and are less likely to have a diagnosis of their condition, resulting in less time for treatment and planning.

Help us reduce the risk of Alzheimer's and reverse the growing trend of Alzheimer's disease among African-Americans. You will work closely with our African American Outreach and Marketing Specialist to support and expand outreach and awareness.

Depending on your skills and comfort level with the public, responsibilities can include:

-- Making initial contact with African American churches in the Bay Area.

-- Helping to identify active, non-religious African American organizations open to educational opportunities.

-- Staffing a table at a health fair or community event.

-- Using social media to help create awareness of Alzheimer's disease.

-- Helping to recruit more volunteers and advocates.
