Many of our camp participants arrive with anxiety, uneasiness, and intimidation by the experience that lies ahead of them at Camp Koru (although we know that will all be eased soon!). Write a card of support and encouragement to our survivors as they face whatever lies ahead in life after cancer. You can mail directly to our office address or inquire with Mindy, our Program Director, to get more info.
Advisor or Board Member
We welcome advisors and leaders in such areas as business, marketing, finance, medical, and programs to help us develop, strengthen, and sustain our organization while carrying out our mission. If you are interested in becoming an advisor or board member to Project Koru, please email Tonia at athletes4cancer.org and complete our board/advisor application.
Office volunteers can do everything from input data to send out thank-you notes and help organize events.
Program Assistant Internship
Our Camp Koru programs run with a lean and carefully selected staff to allow for the best participant experience. Areas of volunteer need at camps include: medical in oncology (RN cred or higher), culinary (chefs and assistants), logistics, photo/video, and group leaders. Participants who have attended camp may also apply to return as a staff ambassador.
We often have openings for committed, energetic, and motivated third or fourth year undergraduate students for our Program Assistant Internship.
Prospective interns should be interested in community outreach and health promotion, be self-directed, thorough, and possess outstanding communication skills. Interns will work under the supervision of our Program and Outreach Director, and may have direct contact with young adult cancer survivors, donors, and/or the community at large.
Interns will have a meaningful opportunity to participate in a project that will enhance their professional development while exposing them to an issue of critical importance in the field of cancer survivorship. Through this exposure and training, they will gain a working knowledge of the unique emotional, physical, and social needs of young adults (diagnosed between 18-39) cancer survivors and non-profit program management. Please contact Mindy Buchanan for application instructions, and/or additional information.
