Volunteering at Cancer Pathways can be a rewarding experience and we offer many ways that you can help to support our community. We have opportunities for teaching classes and workshops and for Family Program volunteers; people who love to bake for events, stuff envelopes for large mailings, or write thank you notes; people who like to research, write letters, and solicit items for program and clubhouse needs; handypersons who can do building maintenance and repairs; and corporate groups that would like to spend a few hours, on a one time basis, sprucing up the facility.
Details about the volunteer options:
Teaching classes/workshops - many of our classes and workshops are taught by volunteers from the community - people who have training and expertise in areas such as art, nutrition, exercise, and cancer-related education. The programming schedule is a compromise of your availability, as well as ours, and classes can be weekly, monthly, or simply a one-time event. To facilitate support groups you do need to be currently licensed in the State of Washington as a social worker or mental health counselor and be trained in the Cancer Pathway’s model of group facilitation.
Family Cancer Support Program - teens ages 16+ may help out on the 3rd Saturday of the month Family Cancer Support Program; as counselors for our annual Camp weeklong day camp in the summer; and for big family social events.
Bakers - come and bake cookies for events, or for freezing, in our beautiful clubhouse kitchen.
Mailings - come and stuff/label large quantities of envelopes on an as-needed basis throughout the year.
Corporate Groups - come and help us with spring and fall - and any other time of the year - facility cleaning (we have a 7,000 square foot space!), organizing a multitude of different things, window washing, repainting our red front door, light carpentry, and more.
