Volunteer Open Call
Young Adult Cancer Canada
Do you want to give back to Young Adult Cancer Canada and its community? Are you interested in helping us build and strengthen the foundation that thousands of young adults affected by cancer stand on? If so, this is for you!
Many people in our community connect with us with offers to help, give back to their peers, with creative ideas for articles or activities, etc. Up until now, we have recruited volunteers based on our immediate needs having a separate application for each role. We now want to expand the opportunities to be engaged and make it easier for those of you who are interested to contribute! We want to build a beautiful list of people interested in contributing one way or another to YACC and our community.
Depending on your interest and our needs, we might connect quickly with you for additional information or it could take a little while, but we will keep this list going and will connect each time there is an opportunity. If timing lines up for you when we reach out, great and if not, all cool we will connect again.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Young Adult Cancer Canada
P.O.Box 29055, St. John's, NL A1A 5B5, CA
Our mission is to support young adults living with, through, and beyond cancer. To be the connection to peers, bridge out of isolation, and source of inspiration. Every cancer, every stage, YACC’s got your back.
YACC research revealed that over 8,000 young adults were diagnosed in Canada each year, that their survival rates were virtually unchanged since the 1970s, and-most importantly-there were no readily-available and relevant support programs to help young adults with cancer deal with the very unique issues they face. Life is different in your teens, 20s and 30s; it just makes sense it’s different with cancer, too. Young adults with cancer need and deserve an organization wholly focused on providing customized support programs to help them deal with their cancer experience. Given there was not one organization in Canada with this as its focus the vision was obvious: YACC had to be that national cancer organization providing resources for young adults looking for inspiration, information and support.
