  • Host an activity and raise funds and awareness

Your Alzheimer's Association staff partner and volunteer leaders support you throughout the season, and are flexible and happy to tailor your volunteer experience around your interests, skills, and availability.

Ideal volunteers would have at least a few of these traits:

  • Enjoy connecting with people
  • Enthusiastic and engaging

  • Leader/inspiring
  • Comfortable talking on the phone
  • Skilled at data mining/researching activity groups
