Another way to volunteer is by joining CBTF's Young Professionals Group!

As leaders in the community, the CBTF Young Professionals Group (YPG) addresses both employment and social challenges that many survivors of childhood brain and spinal cord tumors face. Through quarterly survivor/YPG events, they work to build a stronger survivor community, serve as mentors, and increase survivors’ connections with the professional community.

The group consists of highly motivated young professionals who are familiar with and sensitive to the survivor community. The YPG group is instrumental in helping with activity coordination and volunteering for CBTF events. Members also raise awareness and funds for the organization by planning and hosting their own activities.

Email ypg@cbtf.org to get on our mailing list.
