Volunteer

Want to get YACCtive in the young adult cancer community? We are always looking for volunteers! Send all volunteer inquiries to dfishervance@yacancerconnection.org

Fundraising

Volunteers on this committee will assist us with creating donor prospect lists and reaching out to donors who they know personally. People on this committee should be willing to reach out to their contacts who may be willing to donate and share contact information of these people with the conference organizers. Conference organizers will provide information about amounts we need and what the money is for–this committee is mostly responsible for making connections to a wider pool of individual, corporate, and foundation donors.

Conference Planning

This committee will assist in planning, staffing, and finding volunteers for major operational logistics of the conference. This includes the conference agenda, registration, day-of operations, and follow-up. People on this committee should be available and interested in volunteering on the day of the conference, in capacities ranging from staffing a registration/information table to being room monitors, etc., and should have time to step in for small logistical tasks at short notice.

Outreach/Marketing

This committee will provide support to the conference organizers in building audiences for the conference and publicizing the conference to local media outlets. Tasks might include building lists of potential attendees, sending personal invitation emails, and drafting and sending press releases. People on this committee should have previous experience with marketing and outreach and be good communicators with large networks.

Resources

We are very interested in providing anyone involved in YACC, not just the conference, with a wide pool of cancer-related resources at all times, to assist people through their diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship beyond what our group can provide. This committee will meet a couple of times a year to ensure that a resource list, hosted on the YACC website, is up-to-date and includes a comprehensive list of resources. As the organization grows, this committee may also begin to brainstorm and assist the organization with providing it’s own resources to people involved, including grants for the cost of treatment, setting up home cleaning services, setting up counseling services, etc.

Tech-Know-How

In this day and age, you can’t have a young adult focused group without a stellar website! While YACC is committed to providing the above-mentioned resources to the young adult cancer community, we need some help from our tech savvy members to optimize our ability to virtually share resources and our upcoming events. This committee will assist with YACC’s website development, design, and maintenance. Members of this committee should have previous experience with website development, troubleshooting, graphic design, and/or coding.
