The Northern Cancer Foundation (NCF) held its first official Youth Advisory Council meeting on March 29. Students from all different schools and areas around the city came together to collaborate on ideas for the NCF.
“We’re really excited to form this advisory council. This council is the piece we’ve been missing. Our youth working together to support local cancer care,” said Tannys Laughren, executive director of the Northern Cancer Foundation.
A press release issued by NCF said, “The NCF Youth Advisory Council is a great opportunity for driven, dedicated students to get involved with our events, network with other like-minded students and add some valuable experience to their resumes.”
The Youth Advisory Council will volunteer at NCF events and encourage peers to volunteer, represent their school at NCF board of director meetings, collaborate with the NCF marketing/fundraising committee, and develop and champion fundraising and awareness initiatives at their school in support of the NCF.
All funds raised through the NCF Youth Advisory Council will support the Northeast Cancer Centre for patient care, equipment and research.
The Youth Advisory Council is still looking for more advisors. For more information on becoming an NCF youth advisor, contact the NCF by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 705-523-4673 (HOPE).
