Volunteer At The Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia

Volunteers are an invaluable part of the Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia. There are many opportunities to get involved at one or more of our seven locations — and to meet people like yourself who want to help local families living with cancer.

During ‘normal times’ Interns and volunteers are invaluable to our mission and daily operations. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 Pandemic has forced everyone to adjust their work habits and as such, our intern and volunteer needs are significantly less.  Individuals are welcome to apply but please note there is no need for any in-person volunteer activities, such as front desk receptionist, event assistance, etc.   *All social work/counseling internships for 2021 are filled.   Please check back again in Spring 2021 for more information.*

To join the CSCGP volunteer community, please fill out this form and e-mail it to info@cancersupportphiladelphia.org. You’ll also need to complete a criminal background check and a child abuse history clearance form (please send results to CSCGP).

Finally, visit our Program Calendar to locate a convenient Volunteer Orientation. You can sign up for the orientation by calling the CSCGP location hosting the orientation.

“It’s a great place to volunteer! You can see the difference you’re making.”
