Volunteer at CSC

The volunteers who help at Cancer Support Community come from all walks of community and professional life with one goal – to improve the lives of people living with cancer. While all of CSC’s support groups, classes and programs are led by licensed social workers or other trained professionals, a large group of dedicated volunteers work behind the scenes to help with administrative tasks, facilities maintenance projects, community outreach, and fundraising events.

There are many ways to get involved, whether on a one-time, weekly, monthly, or project basis. CSC welcomes help from individuals as well as community or corporate groups. Please call and speak with our Volunteer Coordinator for more information!
