Advocacy is defined as working for Alzheimer’s issues in the public policy realm by demonstrating commitment to an issue by a growing number of citizens. The Young Champions can achieve a great deal by using the energy inherent in its membership.
Education & Volunteer
The Young Champions are unique among the stakeholders working to end Alzheimer’s. Having been touched by what is often publically perceived as a disease of old age presents the group with a unique opportunity to present this issue to wider audiences, especially younger ones.
Fundraising is vital to the work of the Alzheimer’s Association, and as a constituent group, the Young Champions group is in a particularly good position to help that effort. The Young Champions will help raise funds to provide help and hope for people affected by Alzheimer’s.
The strength of the group lies in its members, and the Young Champions group has an interest in expanding its base by recruiting young professionals who care about Alzheimer’s disease, and who have interest in and the ability to further the group’s goals.
PR / Promotion
The Young Champions have the ability to relate to a younger audience. As a group, the Young Champions are well connected to professional and social networks, and especially adept at social media and networking.
