The Alzheimer’s Association counts on volunteers to help fulfill our mission

In fiscal year 2016, 21,580 hours of service were contributed by 2,304 volunteers, all who regularly shared their time and talents serving in a variety of roles. The estimated dollar value for this volunteer time according to the Independent Sector is $508,424.80.

The Chapter provides opportunities for individuals, groups and businesses. We match volunteers’ interests and skills with available roles at each of our six offices. In some cases, volunteers are able to assist from the comfort of their home. Illinois Chapter volunteers assist with the Alzheimer’s Association Community Representative program (AACR), Advocacy, ALZ Stars, Bankers Life Forget Me Not Days, General Office, Helpline, Illinois Action Summit, Special Event/Day of Event, Special Events Committee, Support Group Facilitator, Veterans Advisory Committee, and our signature events Walk To End Alzheimer’s and The Longest Day.

Help support our ALZ Stars® team at the 2016 Chicago Marathon!

Charity Mile Cheer Stop: Whitney Young High School
6 a.m. - 12 noon on Sunday, October 9

We need enthusiastic groups and individuals to cheer on the marathon runners and especially our amazing ALZ Stars as they enter The Charity Mile! This is a very spirited spot and our team looks forward to seeing our smiling faces and hearing our words of encouragement as they pass the halfway point of the marathon. Itís a proven point that cheering increases speed and reduces fatigue!!

Duties include: cheering, smiling, encouraging and high fiving!

You will also be responsible for handing our runners what they might need at this point in the marathon: water, snacks, and the occasional hug!

Contact Louie Iovane for more information or to reserve your spot at The Charity Mile

The Chapter provides internship opportunities to students during the fall, winter, spring and summer semesters. All internships are unpaid temporary positions with an emphasis on on-the-job training and pre-determined set goals. Students must be enrolled in an accredited college/university that requires an internship as part of their academic requirements or provides coursework credit for related field work.

To learn more about Alzheimer’s Association internship opportunities please contact Director, Volunteers, Louie Iovane at liovane@alz.org.
