How You Can Help

Teen Volunteers

MD Anderson Cancer Center is 
all about people - and teen volunteers join with patients, caregivers, faculty, staff and adult volunteers to create a great institution.

A teen volunteer's role

A teen volunteer's role is to enhance quality of life by providing comfort, care and support to patients and their caregivers, to share the considerable resources that 
MD Anderson has to offer, and to work alongside adult volunteers and staff in meeting the needs of patients and caregivers.

There are limited teen positions available.
