CanTeen relies on the assistance and support of our volunteers to help us deliver our programs for young people. We can’t run our programs without our generous volunteers. As a Psychosocial Volunteer you have specialist skills that are essential in the running of our programs. Our volunteers provide psychosocial support, facilitate or co-facilitate group discussions, participate in and help run activities and most importantly have fun in the process!
CanTeen programs run for 1-3 days and provide our Members with the opportunity to meet other young people going through a similar experience, receive psychosocial support and have some respite and ‘time out’. Psychosocial Volunteers play a crucial role providing effective support and supervision to Young People Living with Cancer attending recreational days and programs.
