How do I apply?
Review the open positions below and fill out an application by July 31st!
Do I need to live in the Atlanta-metro area?
No! If this year has taught us anything, it's that you don't always need to gather in person to be successful!
Do I have to be a Penn State alumni to join?
No, definitely not! We are looking for individuals who are committed to making a difference for families and kids with childhood cancer - it doesn't matter where (or if) you went to college!
We can't wait to get to know you!
