ORGANIZATION: Walk With Sally

Male Mentors!!
We Need You!

Walk With Sally is dedicated to providing assistance through our individualized mentoring and community support services to instill hope and empower children experiencing trauma through a parent, guardians, or sibling's cancer journey. No one should face a loved one's cancer alone, will you walk with a child during this challenging time?

Become a Walk With Sally Mentor

We are looking for mentors to provide support for these children and their families by engaging them in positive, fun, and monthly activities.

To become a mentor you must have lived with or lost a parent / sibling/ friend/ loved one to cancer or are a cancer survivor (must be in remission for 5 years), plus be able to commit to the program for a minimum of 1 year. The hours shared together are 6-8 hours per month and we offer FREE activities to fulfill this requirement. In addition, you will belong to a community of mentors giving back to their community and be assigned a Case Manager for further guidance + support. All mentors must successfully complete an application, training and background checks.

The location listed above is not exactly where you will be volunteering. We have children on our waitlist all over the Greater Los Angeles area and create listing for volunteers near where we have children in need of a mentor.

Please feel free to check out our website at www.walkwithsally.org or Apply Today!
