When Cancer hits the family it changes everything, especially for the child. Walk With Sally is dedicated to providing hope through our individualized mentoring and community support services to empower children experiencing trauma through a parent, guardians, or sibling's cancer journey. No one should face a loved one's cancer alone. We are looking for mentors to provide support for these children and their families by engaging them in positive, fun, and monthly activities.

Become a Walk With Sally Mentor

To become a mentor you must have lived with or lost a parent/ sibling to cancer or are a cancer survivor. You must be able to commit to the program for a minimum of 1 year. The hours shared together are 6-8 hours per month. All mentors must successfully complete and application, interview 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 contact info@walkwithsally.org for more information or submit your interest through Vol Match. Please feel free to check out our website at www.walkwithsally.org!
