Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers enhance our ability to provide the support, education, and research that will help everyone impacted by Parkinson’s disease live life to the fullest. Roles provided by our volunteers include:

  • Office management support, such as assembling welcome packets
  • Calling or writing a note for a person with Parkinson disease who is homebound or has been admitted to an institution
  • Support group leader
  • Special project and event support
  • Assisting an exercise class instructor
