Please complete this application form if you are interested in becoming a volunteer with The ALS Association, Minnesota/North Dakota/South Dakota Chapter.

**Interested in our Family Assistance Program (FAP)? We do have an 18-month waiting period for those who've experienced a close loss (spouse/partner, immediate family member, best friend, etc.) to allow you the time to process your own grief journey. Family members of those currently being served by the Chapter are also not eligible for Family Assistance volunteer opportunities. 

These restrictions apply to FAP only: you are welcome to apply for event or administrative volunteer opportunities at any time.

If you have questions about The ALS Association, volunteering, or submitting this application, please contact Jenna Van Proosdy, Volunteer Coordinator, at 612-455-6052 or
