Want to hold a leadership position at a youth-led organization that makes an international impact on kids with cancer? Start a chapter in your school, region, or state for Cancer Kids First! Benefits of starting a CKF chapter include: 1) Impress colleges/companies with your ability to efficiently lead and manage a team, 2) Help ease the difficult childhoods of pediatric cancer patients, 3) Earn numerous hours of service 4) Improve your leadership, organizational, and communication skills, 5) Gain the opportunity to connect with new people.

Though there are many benefits to starting a CKF chapter, keep in mind that you must be organized and committed to start and maintain a successful chapter. Time and hard work will need to be put into this, but your efforts will pay off! This is a great opportunity if you love to lead and help others.

In case you didn't know what a chapter is, a chapter is a branch off of an organization. While the chapter works towards the same goals as the bigger organization, they operate on a smaller level.
