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.
My favourite thing about Camp Goodtime is being able to hang out with other kids who have survived cancer. They know what is going on in your life and can help you get through it.
Together we can reduce the burden of cancer
Last year, we only had the resources available to fund 40% of high-priority research projects. Imagine the impact we could have if we were able to fund 100%.
