Have you or your family been impacted by Alzheimer's or a related dementia? Here's a fun way to give back and make a difference in your community! We are looking for passionate Alzheimer's Ambassadors to serve on The Longest Day Volunteer Committee across South Carolina. You can help the Alzheimer’s Association realize our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease and all other dementia, by helping with The Longest Day event in your community.

  • The Longest Day is the day with the most light - the summer solstice. The Longest Day participants fight the darkness of Alzheimer's and all other dementia through a fundraising activity of their choice on a day that works for them.

  • With sports tournaments, card games, parties, baking and more, participants turn their passion into purpose and raise funds to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

  • Participants can literally do anything, anytime, anywhere - whatever works best for them. Honor a loved one impacted by dementia by doing their favorite activity or, choose an activity you love.

  • Either way we are here to help you turn it into a fundraiser to ENDALZ! We provide tools, resources and local support to help you succeed.

  • For more information on The Longest Day visit www.alz.org/tld or view the event video at https://youtu.be/fMUOPMnj9sk

Volunteers are needed across South Carolina to fill three teams:

  1. Leadership Team: Recruit & lead volunteers to achieve the event growth goals

  2. Participant Engagement Team: Keep current & past participants engaged

  3. Community Outreach Team: Promote the event and secure new participants

Ideal volunteers would have some of these traits: Be passionate about ending Alzheimer's, be creative, be enthusiastic about volunteering, enjoy connecting with others, be comfortable talking on the phone, be willing to drop by local groups and businesses, be committed to promoting The Longest Day whenever they can, and be willing to participate in The Longest Day by doing their own event. Volunteer Ambassadors should be based in South Carolina.

Timeline & Commitment: We have two 6 month terms but welcome volunteers year round also. The Fall term runs from August to January and the Spring term runs January to June. The role requires a commitment of 1-2 hours a week. The work is flexible and we try to tailor your volunteer experience to your interests and needs.

Getting Started: New volunteers are on-boarded to the team monthly on an ongoing basis. Local staff will help you get trained and provide ongoing support such as scripts and event materials. We hope you'll join the team! For more information on volunteering on The Longest Day Committee email Betsy Brown at bembrown@alz.org or text or call Betsy at 864-699-0623.
