About

We need volunteers to help our highly successful, rapidly-growing Policy & Advocacy program recruit, train, manage and support our hundreds of passionate advocacy volunteers in California and Nevada.

Volunteers will work closely with our Policy & Advocacy staff at our warm, friendly Lafayette office.

Projects that we currently need help with include:

  • Data entry - this is ongoing, and we would LOVE a volunteer to come in 1-2 hours a week to help us clear our backlog

  • Research Member of Congress' engagement with our issue on Facebook and Twitter

  • Interview potential new advocacy volunteers by phone

The Alzheimer's Association supports individuals and families dealing with Alzheimer's disease in numerous ways, including support groups, respite care, educational programs, trainings for professionals, fundraising, funding Alzheimer's research and increasing public awareness.

Our Policy and Advocacy program has been nationally recognized as a leader in grassroots advocacy for policies to improve research, care and support for people with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers.

Whether you have lots of experience with policy and advocacy or none, whether you've been personally touched by Alzheimer's disease or just want to volunteer for a great organization in the Lafayette area, you can make a lasting difference by helping us create a world without Alzheimer's disease.
