Cancer Institute of NJ Seeks Volunteers for Teen Education Program

Volunteers will meet with pre-teens and teens in the New Brunswick area to discuss cancer risks associated with tobacco use and excess sun exposure.

The Cancer Institute of New Jersey Office of Community Outreach seeks volunteers to be a part of its Cancer Awareness Youth Educator Badge Program.

The program targets kids ages 11-14 in the New Brunswick area for the purpose of educating them about cancer risks associated with tobacco use and excess sun exposure, according to a press release from the Cancer Institute of New Jersey.

The program curriculum was designed in cooperation with Johnson & Johnson, the release said.

Working in teams of two, volunteers will conduct group activities with students using lesson plans, visual aids and handouts designed by the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the release said.

Volunteers must be age 18 or older and currently working with middle-school ages children, or a member of a community organization interested in bringing the program to their kids.

A three-hour training session will be held on Feb. 23.
