Volunteer opportunities for TEENS
Create a short video (less than a minute) telling us your first name (NO last names), city, if you know of others in your family with Alport syndrome, and what you like to do for fun. We’ll add your video to others on our website to help show teens living with AS that they are not alone! (With permission from parents/guardian). Send your video to [email protected]. If you have trouble sending, just email and we’ll figure it out.
Join our teen ambassador efforts. Teens help as assistants at our Family Meetings, get connected to other teens with Alport syndrome, assist with advocacy efforts on policy issues important to Alport patient families, advise on updated content for our website and more. To apply, contact us.
