Get involved . . . make a difference . . . volunteer!



The Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter relies on dedicated volunteers to help us in our efforts to achieve a world without Alzheimer's. The Chapter values the generosity and the active choice of individuals to give their time, knowledge, skills, expertise, leadership and compassion to volunteer service with the Alzheimer’s Association.

Please take a moment to read the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter Philosophy on Volunteerism to learn more about our commitment to our volunteer team.

Whether you can spare only a few hours or you can make a more significant time commitment, we hope you will consider sharing your time and talent.  There are many opportunities to serve throughout the year.  We can find the right fit for your interests and skills!
