Volunteering

Cancer Council ACT is always looking for dedicated volunteers to help out with our fundraising events and many other tasks.  People from all walks of life volunteer with us.  Students and young people volunteer to gain work experience and skills they need to help them obtain employment in later life.  Similarly, other people volunteer after they have had a break from the workforce to gain fresh experience and there are many who are still working who bring with them a wealth of skills, knowledge and experience.

Key volunteering opportunities are available with Relay For Life, Daffodil Day and Pink Ribbon Day. To become a Cancer Council volunteer simply complete and submit our Become a Volunteer Form.
