LIVESTRONG Leaders

The LIVESTRONG Leaders Program engages volunteers across the globe in support of our mission to improve the lives of people affected by cancer now.

Become a Leader

Program Overview

LIVESTRONG means doing the best and the most for those affected by cancer, now. Our vision is that people living with cancer have everything they need throughout their journey. We provide individuals and communities with best-in-class programs and services that meaningfully improve their cancer experience. LIVESTRONG is about the person, not the disease.

With that in mind, LIVESTRONG Leaders act as community representatives to help LIVESTRONG strengthen our mission, amplify our message and expand our movement of supporters in local communities and online in three distinct ways: providing education and raising awareness around our programs and services, participating in LIVESTRONG supported and sanctioned legislative advocacy activities and taking part in Team LIVESTRONG and grassroots fundraising efforts.

Become a Leader!

We encourage applicants to have a basic understanding of LIVESTRONG’s mission, programs and services. You can read more about what we do here.
