Because we rely on our volunteers, we offer a broad range of Volunteer Opportunities.
Office Administrative Work: Help with office activities such as answering the phone, stuffing envelopes, copying materials, folding letters, distributing materials, gathering information on county services and assisting in the recruitment of volunteers.
Health Fairs: Increase awareness of the Alzheimer's Association by attending health fairs to staff a booth, provide handout information, and interact one on one with members of the community.
Helpline Specialist: Provide information and referral to patients, caregivers and professional providers via the phone. Requires interview with a Helpline/ Resource Coordinator, and you must be available to work a 3 hour shift each week.
Public Policy: Be involved with public policy issues by attending legislative hearings and participating in meetings with legislators in your local community as well as in Austin and Washington, D.C.
Speaker's Bureau: The Association provides speakers for presentations on various aspects of Alzheimer's disease. If you have good presentation skills and enjoy speaking to groups, this could be for you!
Special Events: There are two ways to become involved with our special events. Be on a committee for a special event and help the Association raise the funds it needs to serve the community, or volunteer for the day of the event.
Support Group Facilitators: Hold meetings to provide emotional support and information sharing for family members and caregivers.
