Foundation of America

AFA On Campus

AFA on Campus is a division of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) that caters exclusively to students at colleges and universities across the country in an effort to engage them in awareness-raising activities and to groom tomorrow’s leaders in the Alzheimer’s community. Initially founded as an offshoot of our AFA Teens division, AFA On Campus provides an opportunity for individuals who have been involved in the cause during high school to continue their efforts.

In 2014, AFA kicked off its Raise Your Voice for Care college tour at Frostburg State University, bringing a full day of educational programs and workshops, displays of the AFA Quilt to Remember and live music to campus communities across the country.

Start a Chapter:

Step 1: Check to see if your college or university has specific guidelines for starting a club or organization. If so, we recommend obtaining and review the guidelines prior to submitting an application to start a chapter.

Step 2: Contact AFA’s young leadership coordinator at 866-232-8484 or to request an application and additional information about the program, including a program handbook, which provides an overview of AFA and the objectives of AFA on Campus.

Step 3: Some schools may also require their own application in order to start a club, as well as a constitution for your new organization. AFA is happy to provide a sample constitution, which includes a description of AFA on Campus’ mission and procedures for chapter meetings.

Step 4: Begin planning volunteer activities in your community and/or fundraising events.
