Volunteers are at the very core of Candlelighters, and their support allows us to offer many wonderful programs for families affected by childhood cancer.

Volunteers help in many areas at Candlelighters. From office assistance, to events, direct service with our kiddos and Camp Firefly, there is always something going on! 

Most of the volunteer programming is for adults 18 years and older, although certain events are designed for younger volunteers and family participation. Volunteers will undergo screening and background checks, and trainings will be offered throughout the year.
