Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteers come in all sizes, shapes and colors, but their hearts are pink and their caring has no limit. Are you a leader, a thinker or a doer? Use your talents in our promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever!  We need you now more than ever. Volunteers provide countless hours contributing their skills to further the Susan G. Komen® promise. We will work with your availability.  Every minute you spend helping gives another minute of hope to those affected by breast cancer.

We are always interested in getting enthusiastic people into our office when they are able to do so! If you would like to help with data entry, organization or other duties we need help with in our office, please email info@komennorthlouisiana.org to talk about tailoring some time to volunteer with us that works with your schedule!

Specific program areas include:

  • Development/Special Events including
    • Race for the Cure:
    • Color Me for a Cure 5k (Ruston, La.)
    • Dancing for the Cure (Shreveport, La.)
    • October events (National Breast Cancer Awareness Month)
