Interning With Us

Act Now Foundation is a non-profit organization, a Dementia Resource Center that supports families living and struggling with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Our mission, to create a dementia-friendly New Jersey. We are funded through the counties of Hudson, Bergen, and Essex to provide our services, both in English and in Spanish, free of charge to its residents. These services include cognitive assessments, support/crisis management, long-term care planning, educational seminars, advocacy and outreach, first responder training, and virtual dementia tours. As a non-profit, we primarily serve low-income individuals and minorities.

     We offer internships mainly for undergraduate and graduate students, but we have also worked with high schools such as Cliffside Park High School and Weehawken High School to provide students with hands-on experience before they jump into the next chapter of their lives.
