Youth volunteer opportunities
Young people like you, who get involved as Canadian Cancer Society volunteers bring hope, energy and excitement for a future where no Canadian fears cancer. Tapping into your strengths and building a lifelong commitment to the cancer cause is an important organizational priority. In fact, 29% of new volunteers who joined the Society in the last year were 18 and under. We hope to engage and encourage you to apply your enthusiasm, creativity and energy in the fight against cancer.
Here are some ways you can get involved
Are you a whiz on the computer? There are often lots of random jobs around the office and always before events, so this is a good way to help out.

Great progress has been made
Some cancers, such as thyroid and testicular, have survival rates of over 90%. Other cancers, such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal, continue to have very low survival rates.
