Young Ambassadors/Professionals

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.

If you are interested in learning more about how you can become involved in the Alzheimer's Association Young Ambassadors/Professionals, contact our volunteer coordinator at 800.272.3900.

Volunteer Survey Results
 

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.

Jimmie E.

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.
