Be a
Travel Trustee

A good portion of our expenses includes travel for our campers and staff to get to camp destinations and vans to transport our group to the experiences and adventures that make such an impact on our survivors. As a Travel Trustee, you are committing to sending young survivors to camp, when they wouldn’t have been able to afford the travel. You can do this buy purchasing a flight for a camper, transferring air miles to Project Koru to use, or designating a donation for our travel fund.



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.



Kiteboard 4 Cancer, powered by Patagonia, is our biggest fundraiser and definitely the most fun event you may ever be a part of. We are always looking for sponsors, volunteers, committee leaders and donors to help make KB4C a success. We are proud to say that 100% of all proceeds benefits Project Koru.


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 and complete our board/advisor application.

Administrative Volunteers

Admin volunteers can do everything from input data to compile and organize content to send out thank-you notes and help organize events. We are always in need of admin volunteers on an ongoing basis -- they are the foundation of our organization! If you are reliable and have a steady (even small!) number of hours each week you can give, please consider applying to help. 

Program Volunteers

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 (mid-level cred or higher), culinary (chefs and assistants), logistics, photo/video, and group leaders. Participants who have attended camp should apply through our Alumni Leadership Program.

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 at for application instructions, and/or additional information.
