Becoming a Volunteer

Becoming a Volunteer

The Alzheimer's Association relies on dedicated volunteers to achieve our vision of a world without Alzheimer's and expand the reach of our programs to all communities. 
We seek committed, passionate volunteers to educate the public, lead support groups and provide social engagement to those living with early-stage Alzheimer's. 

Here are the steps to become a program volunteer: 

1. Review our volunteer opportunities. 

Each opportunity describes its purpose, responsibilities, qualifications, commitment and benefits to the volunteer. 
Learn more about our program volunteer opportunities.

2. Complete the application and screening process.*

When you find a role that fits your passion, skills and availability, simply apply online. Our staff will contact you to start the matching process. 

3. Learn about volunteer training.

Each position has a unique training pathway designed to help you reach your volunteer goals.

4. Have fun!

Volunteering for the Alzheimer's Association is a rewarding experience that builds your skills, gives back to your community and helps people facing Alzheimer's.


*Volunteers with direct contact to our constituents or constituent data require a background check as part of the selection process. The safety of our constituents, volunteers and supporters is of paramount importance to us.
