About the Youth Movement Against Alzheimer's
Chartered in 2015, the Youth Movement Against Alzheimer’s (YMAA) actively engages over 500 students, making it the largest youth-led Alzheimer’s 501(c)(3) non-profit in the nation. YMAA’s efforts focus on advocacy and outreach, caregiving innovation, and student research.
Over the next 5 years, YMAA will focus on implementing and scaling its social enterprise, YouthCare, which will expand access to caregiving services for low-income and minority family caregivers. Simultaneously, our advocacy model will continue to increase the number of students who start and develop university and high school chapters.
A culture where youth embrace aging and alleviate the impact of Alzheimer's.
To promote understanding of Alzheimer's among youth and young adults by providing opportunities to help those affected by the disease.
