VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: Be a Localife leader!

Help grow the YACC community by hosting some fun events in your city!

Since 2012, Localife has been connecting young adults dealing with cancer in their own communities through fun, casual events and opportunities. We are always on the hunt for great new leaders to help YACC with its mission of being “a connection to peers, bridge out of isolation, and source of inspiration.” We are currently recruiting for Calgary, Edmonton, and Ottawa!

The “job” description

Localife is run by volunteer teams of two who have been diagnosed with cancer or have supported someone who was diagnosed as a young adult.

The role requires you to:

Leader statements

Here’s what some of our other leaders had to say about their experiences:

“Localife changed me in ways I can’t even explain, I loved every single minute with every single person that attended. We always had a natural connection and I still hope that I will be able to attend a few events after I am replaced. Each part of YACC, little or small has made a huge impact on me.”

– Kelly, Localife St. John’s

“Leading Localife is kind of like deciding to throw a party in the middle of a hurricane. All hell is breaking loose and you shout through the chaos, “Hey! Pull up a chair!” What a gift to be able to help facilitate connection and community for other young adult cancer survivors on their journey. In my opinion, leading Localife is badass and a lot of fun. Yup, there will be moments when your heart breaks as you listen to someone’s story, but trust me, even those moments become part of why you walk away from an event with a quiet smile and a full heart. Here’s to navigating the storms together!”

– Jenna, Localife Calgary
