Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are very important to the daily function of the Epilepsy Foundation Oregon (EFOR). Volunteering can be a rich, rewarding experience. EFOR hosts numerous opportunities for volunteers to plug-in on a short term or long term basis – whatever fits your schedule!

Our volunteers are expected to follow all policies and expectations set forth by the Board of Directors. In accordance with policy, EFOR will conduct background checks on all volunteers working with children. All volunteer positions are unpaid.

Community Action Network (CAN) Volunteer Program

EFOR receives hundreds of calls a year for a representative to talk to a service club, school or company. CAN Volunteers (see CAN Volunteer section) volunteer to help start Walk teams and raise funds for EFOR, provide public speaking and/or one-to-one support and sharing of one’s personal experience with epilepsy. CAN Volunteer training sessions to become a certified CAN Volunteer are available through EFOR.
