Making it count
|From assisting with child abuse prevention initiatives to distributing food to senior citizens, your volunteer efforts can directly impact community members young and old|
Champion cancer research
Contribute to the fight against cancer by helping the American Cancer Society with its new research study, the Cancer Prevention Study-3. This study will give researchers a better understanding of the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer. As a CPS-3 Community Champion, you may either assist with the study's enrollment process and promotional efforts or participate in the study itself, which takes place Sept. 8-15. All follow-up with study participants will be managed by the ACS Epidemiology Program. For more information, contact Demetria Robinson at 767-4558 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Answer the call
Prevent Child Abuse Louisiana needs Kidline volunteers. Kidline (800-CHILDREN) is an anonymous, confidential, toll-free telephone service that offers crisis intervention, information on child maltreatment, parenting help and referrals to community resources. Volunteers are trained to answer phone calls and provide support in these instances. Kidline serves the families of Louisiana seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, pass a criminal background check, and volunteer 12 hours per month for a minimum of six months. For more information, contact Amanda Brunson at 925-9520 or email@example.com.
History in the making
Every day, the Old State Capitol hosts visiting travelers, schoolchildren and dignitaries. Friendly and articulate volunteers are needed to serve as docents, informing visitors about the building's architecture and colorful history as well as how it factors in Louisiana's political history. Contact Susan Vincent at 924-0573 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Charlotte Wall at 342-0500 or email@example.com, about schedules and training sessions. The Old State Capitol is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
