We have opportunities across the country.

Become a Trained Outreach Volunteer We offer these programs to help you use your personal breast cancer experience to make a difference in your community. These programs provide hands-on training and are led by breast cancer experts and Living Beyond Breast Cancer staff.

Young Advocate Program

This national training program is for women diagnosed with breast cancer before age 45, who have limited incomes and were diagnosed within the last 3 years or are living with metastatic breast cancer. We hold two Young Advocate trainings a year in conjunction with one of our events or conferences. After the training, Young Advocates are tasked with completing at least two advocacy-related activities within 6 months of the training. Learn more about the Young Advocate Program.

Community Connector Program

This national training program is for those who are affected by breast cancer and passionate about connecting their communities to LBBC resources. The next training will be held in 2018.  After training, Community Connectors complete at least three activities per year for a two year commitment period.  

Provide Peer Support – Volunteer for our Breast Cancer HelplineAre you interested in giving back by offering peer support to others impacted by breast cancer? Then you might consider volunteering for our Breast Cancer Helpline. Our Helpline is available by phone. All volunteers receive extensive training and must be at least one year beyond active treatment or living with metastatic breast cancer. Learn more about the Breast Cancer Helpline.
