Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers play a vital role at Gilda's Club. We are excited that you are considering volunteering with us! It is because of volunteers like you that we are able to provide a place for families living with cancer to build social and emotional support. Our Clubhouse could not keep its red doors open without great volunteers like you!

There are many areas of volunteer work available and, depending on your interests and special areas of knowledge, you will have the opportunity to become involved in various aspects of the Club.

All new volunteers are required to attend a New Volunteer Orientation. These sessions are held once a month. To sign up, contact Jessica, Director of Volunteer Resources.
