College & School Programs

Colleges Against Cancer chapters are changing the lives of people impacted by cancer and giving students valuable volunteer and leadership experiences. As an American Cancer Society volunteer, you will gain important experience – learning key skills in teamwork, communication, and planning that will be valuable for any undergraduate or graduate student, as well as those applying to law or medical school or seeking employment after graduation.


Colleges Against Cancer chapters around the country fundraise for the American Cancer Society primarily through Campus Relay For Life events.
