With your support we help residents of Oxford counties throughout their cancer journey. Volunteering with the Society is a great opportunity for you to make a positive impact in your community, be part of a team, share your experience, learn new skills and develop lasting friendships. Volunteers are critical to our accomplishments and we wouldn't be able to support, inform and empower those touched by cancer without you.
When you join our nationwide team, you have the combined strength of volunteers from across the country standing behind you to help you make a difference in someone's life. Together we are much stronger than any of us are alone. Come and join the fight against cancer by volunteering with us! We are currently recruiting for the following volunteer roles (training is provided for all roles):
Volunteer Drivers - Wheels Of Hope Program
The road to recovery needs more drivers … with the kindness and support of volunteer drivers, cancer patients only need to worry about getting better and beating cancer for good. As a volunteer driver, you’ll pick patients up from their home and take them to their attending hospital or regional cancer centre. You’ll be there to offer friendly support and kindness at a time when they need it the most. And when their treatment is done, you'll make sure they get home. You can drive as suits your schedule, from Monday to Friday. Training, support and mileage reimbursement is provided. Daytime availability is required.
Public Issue Advocates
We are looking for volunteers to connect with our local government officials (MP, MPP, Mayor/Reeve/Warden) to advocate for healthy policy development, to help implement policies and bills that will alleviate some of the hazards that may have a direct correlation to a cancer diagnosis. In this role, the activities involve: phone calls, meetings, emails, letter writing, networking, attending candidate debates. Daytime availability is required.
Our volunteers help educate our community on how they can prevent cancer from occurring through simple lifestyle changes. Activities can include working displays at attending health shows, fairs, information nights etc., as well as giving presentations to community service groups, workplaces and schools. Day time, as well as periodic weekend availability required.
