Development Internship: Walk to End Alzheimer’s

Unpaid / 10-12 Hours per week minimum


Be part of the movement to end Alzheimer’s!

Right now, millions of Americans are facing the devastation of Alzheimer’s. This disease is robbing us of our finances, our families, and our futures - but at the Alzheimer’s Association, we’re relentlessly working to change that by addressing the challenges in front of us with speed and without limitations or boundaries. With our network of more than 75 chapters across the country, we’re advancing world-class research, ensuring access to gold-standard care and support, and hiring talented, mission-driven people who make it all happen.

The Alzheimer’s Association has been ranked as one of the Best Nonprofits to Work For by The Nonprofit Times nine years in a row, recognizing our leadership, and mission-driven atmosphere. This unpaid internship provides the experience and skill-building for future job possibilities in a wide range of professional settings.
