Ongoing AHA Volunteer Opportunities

1. You’re The Cure Ambassador
 Often the best way to impact the health of a community is impacting the policies that affect health. Our You’re The Cure Advocacy network provides ample opportunities to connect online and offline with federal, state, and local policy makers. Visit www.yourethecure.org to learn more!
 

2. Empowered To Serve Ambassador
The American Heart Association is committed to addressing health disparities that adversely impact diverse populations. Empowered to Serve provides online and offline resources for empowering your family, church, neighborhood and more to take control of their heart health! Sign up at www.empoweredtoserve.org to become an ambassador for your community!
 

3. Support Network Ambassador
The effects of heart disease and stroke do not end with hospital discharge. All too often both patients and caregivers experience isolation and depression. Our online Support Network helps connect those affected in a safe and encouraging environment. Are you a survivor or caregiver yourself? Sign up at www.heart.org/supportnetwork to give and receive encouragement, practical
advice and more.
 

4. Form a Heart Walk Team
Invite your family, friends, and coworkers to form a Community or Corporate Team for an upcoming Heart & Stroke Walk. Walking is a great way to get heart healthy exercise in a group and those who want can use our provided tools to raise lifesaving funds! Visit MilwaukeeHeartWalk.org or Racine-KenoshaHeartWalk.org for more details!
