NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK IS APRIL 6 - 12, 2014!

The National Capital Area Chapter offers a hearty and heartfelt "THANK YOU" to our team of over 170 volunteers who work tirelessly each month, week and day to deliver important education programs, provide supportive services for families, support Chapter office staff, help increase funding for Alzheimer's care, support and research, influence changes in public policy and much, much more. We are always ready to welcome even more volunteer team members!

 




Get involved . . . Make a difference . . . Volunteer!


The Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter (NCA) 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!
