Welcome to volunteering in Southeast Michigan  

We want to help you make a difference! Our goal is to provide meaningful involvement for new volunteers and to deepen and expand the engagement of existing volunteers. 
Watch for volunteer opportunities with the Southeast Michigan American Heart Association. 




Eating healthier can help reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke and other diseases. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be hard or require you to give up all the foods you love. It’s about making smart choices to build an overall healthy dietary pattern.

CALLING ALL HEART WALK VOLUNTEERS

The Metro Detroit Heart Walk will be held on Saturday, May 20th on the campus of Wayne State University. Come rain or shine, we need committed volunteers to help make this year’s walk experience fun and successful. Creative minds and helpful hands are all welcome, but we will be doing things a little differently this year. Volunteers will meet monthly and will be required to touch base with us often. Do not fret, we have jobs for everyone. If you are interested in becoming a part of our Heart Walk Experience Volunteer Committee, please email Laura.Grace@heart.org with your information. We can’t wait to work with you!

For more information regarding the walk, please visit www.miheartwalk.org.

Mark your calendars for April 3rd as Move More Day. Every April, we celebrate physical activity and encourage all Americans to commit to being more active on a regular basis. Americans are spending more time sitting- at work, school or in front of a screen- than ever before. We're becoming less active, which can increase our risk of heart disease, stroke and other diseases.
Hands-Only CPR Volunteer Needed

Delta Academy young students are eager to learn Hands-Only CPR. The session will take place on Saturday, April 8th from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at The Center for Simulation, Education and Research at Henry Ford Hospital- 2799 W Grand Blvd, Detroit, MI 48202. A volunteer is needed to conduct Hands-Only CPR. If interested, please contact Whitney Coleman at whitney.coleman@heart.org.
