The Alzheimer's Association St. Louis Chapter counts on 1,200 volunteers to help move our mission forward. Please join our team of volunteers who are helping to change the course of this disease.

The Alzheimer's Association St. Louis Chapter has several openings for volunteers of all ages and skill levels. Below is a list of sample volunteer opportunities. For a complete list of opportunities and descriptions please reference page three of the volunteer application.
The Young Ambassadors/Professionals are charged with expanding greater awareness and support of the Alzheimer’s Association among a diverse group of mid-20 to late-30 year-old emerging leaders. The hope is that the connections the committee makes will raise awareness of our services and lead to the future leadership and support of the Alzheimer's Association.

Spring of 2014, the Volunteer Work Group conducted a survey of all active and inactive volunteers to get a better idea of how we can enhance our current volunteer program. Here are the results.
Throughout the month of December, 21 Helpline Specialists took on 20 hours of training to learn our new constituent relationship management database, Personify. Due to the new database, the Association will be able to track all activity with an individual client in the same database. It is a shared databased with our National Chapter to ensure shared information and a high quality service. Thank you to all the volunteers who make Helpline possible! To become a Helpline volunteer, please fill out the volunteer application.

As a former care partner, Jimmie knows all to well the challenges of Alzheimer's for both the person living with the disease and their loved ones. He also knows the value of services offered by the Alzheimer's Association. When the timing was right, Jimmie wanted to 'pay it forward' and give back as an Alzheimer's Association volunteer. Today, Jimmie serves as an advocate, educator, and facilitator for the Project Esteem graduate group that is designed for people living with memory loss and their care partners. At the close of a recent meeting, Jim helped a participant who exited through the wrong door. His compassionate experience and training guided the gentleman to safety and back to his loved ones. Thanks Jimmie for your compassionate commitment and ongoing service to advance our mission. You are an excellent example of volunteerism and how it makes a difference.
