1. Become a Community Ambassador
Community Ambassadors are our feet on the ground in the communities that need us most. Cancer and Careers has a small staff, so volunteers are vital in bringing the critical information and resources that we offer to their local communities!
Some ideas on how to be an effective ambassador include:
- Request that CAC publications be put in the resource library at your local hospital/clinic (or offer to order for distribution by medical/psychosocial personnel at your hospital/clinic). All are available to order free in bulk here: www.cancerandcareers.org/publication_orders/new
- Request your cancer support group facilitator dedicate a session on work issues and offer to bring in CAC materials.
- Share with local organizations. Cancer and Careers can arm you with all of the materials you would need to spread the word about our services in your community.
- Coordinate a fundraiser. Help us help more people by hosting a bar night with friends, holding a bake sale, asking your local grocery store to round up purchases or whatever clever and creative thing you can think of and send the proceeds to CAC. For details on where to send donations and our tax ID number, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 646-929-8019.
