Become a Sun Safety Ambassador!

The Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation seeks volunteer Sun Safety Ambassadors. Sun Safety Ambassadors deliver virtual educational presentations about skin cancer and sun safety to students in grades 4 to 7. Our ideal Ambassadors will help raise awareness about skin cancer and provide students with the tools they need to stay safe in the sun. We will provide training to give our volunteers the tools they need to become a Sun Safety superstar!

The Sun Safety Ambassador program runs from February to June every year.
