Are you a caregiver or do you know someone who care for a loved one?
Join our team and make a difference in a caregiver's life and your community!
The Arizona Caregiver Coalition is looking for Volunteer Caregiver Advocates to help with community outreach!
Advocates attend special events and networking events two or three times a month.
The purpose of ACC Ambassadors is to inform to the community about ACC programs, classes, services, and events. As well as advocate for Arizona Family Caregivers. They volunteer to attend community events, and they will serve as the face of the Arizona Caregiver Coalition in their community.
Events are usually during the weekdays and some on Saturdays. Length of time is typically from 2 -4 hours each event.
We are looking for several volunteers to be on call; you would pick the dates and locations that work for you.
Locations can be all around the valley, but we will work together to schedule events that are as close as possible to your location.
No prior knowledge is required, we will train you on the History of the Arizona Caregiver Coalition, our program and the services that we provide.
You will need your own reliable transportation.
For more information, please contact Brandon Vickers.

About Arizona Caregiver Coalition
1717 W Jefferson St., PHOENIX, AZ 85007, US
The Arizona Caregiver Coalition works to improve the quality of life for family caregivers across Arizona through collaborative partnerships, advocacy, resources, and respite support.
The Arizona Caregiver Coalition is a community-based, 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. It was founded in 2014 to support and advocate for family caregivers in Arizona. We operate the statewide Caregiver Resource Line (888-737-7494) to answer questions and provide information. We also offer funding for respite, so that family caregivers can get a break. We partner with the Arizona Department of Economic Security, Area Agencies on Aging, and other community based organizations.
The Arizona Caregiver Coalition is an integral organization within the Arizona caregiver community. Over the course of 9 months (September 2021 through May 2022), The Arizona Caregiver Coalition will collaborate with AmeriCorps and local organizations to improve the quality of life for family caregivers throughout Arizona, and help develop a community where family caregivers thrive.
To ensure that members meet the necessary living expenses incurred while participating in the Arizona Caregiver Coalition AmeriCorps program, members are provided a modest living stipend. Members also receive ongoing professional development throughout the year. Fellows will be eligible for an AmeriCorps Segal Education Award upon successful completion of the service term in good standing with the service site (completing 450 hours of service for Quarter-time members). Most importantly, members gain valuable professional and personal experience and acquire skills in civic-engagement, teamwork and leadership during a year of service.
