Volunteer

Volunteering for Kids Cancer Alliance can be a life-changing experience. Read what some of our volunteers have said about giving their time to KCA:

"Kids Cancer Alliance is a powerful source of meaningful friendships. It's a place full of love and caring."
-Greg Wells, volunteer for 17years

"The kids and volunteers from KCA always develop amazing, loving, bonds that are hard to explain to anyone who isn't involved."

"I love getting to know the children and having the opportunity to truly make a difference in their life. I feel so privileged to be a part of the Kids Cancer Alliance family."

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities year around. Below are requirements for each of our programs. For more information, please contact us.
