Young Advocate Program
Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s Young Advocate Program provides the tools and training to help young people use their personal breast cancer experience to make a difference in their communities by raising awareness, further their understanding of the disease and advocate for others. This opportunity is geared toward people diagnosed with breast cancer before age 45 who live in the United States and its territories.
I feel so lucky for finding this group and for having the opportunity to be connected to help others.
Young Advocates are tasked with connecting others to LBBC through grassroots outreach within their community and completing two advocacy related activities within 1 year. In the past, Young Advocates have spoken at events in their communities, participated in research review boards, raised awareness of young people affected by breast cancer through blog posts and social media outreach, shared LBBC materials with healthcare providers and more.
Applications for 2022 have closed.
