Take Action and Volunteer

Throughout the U.S., AFTD volunteers donate their time and their talents to make the journey easier for the next family. Our volunteers truly understand the daily realities of FTD — the challenges, the setbacks, even the small triumphs. They are our community’s boots on the ground, delivering support, spreading awareness and making a difference for others affected by FTD. 

How You Can Help

AFTD’s volunteer opportunities can be matched to best suit your skills, preferences and availability. Should you choose to donate your time to AFTD, we will guide and support you throughout, ensuring that your experience is rewarding and fulfilling — and that it positively impacts the FTD community.

Here are some highlights of current AFTD volunteer opportunities. Is one of them right for you?

“It is extremely rewarding to be able to use my experiences as an FTD caregiver to help others traveling a similar journey.”
