You will learn about who we are, the services volunteers provide and requirements for volunteering. Once you’ve completed orientation, you will participate in our volunteer training. It is led by  community partners and staff and covers the biology and psychosocial impact of cancer, cultural humility, boundaries, confidentiality, self-care and community resources.
