April is National Volunteer Month! As the month comes to a close, we want to highlight some of our amazing volunteers. TSF is primarily volunteer-led. We are grateful for the individuals who generously offer their time and talent to advance this mission.
TSF has volunteers in a variety of roles, and there is truly something for everyone! We offer long-term and short-term opportunities that are primarily virtual. Whatever your skills and interests are, we would love to work with you as a volunteer! You can read the stories of some of our current volunteers below. To learn how you can get involved, sign-up for the webinar “TSF Volunteers Making a Difference” on April 29 at 8pm ET!
Why Do You Volunteer?
“I volunteer with TSF because I believe every TS patient deserves the best care possible. This can happen through the work of groups like TSF raising awareness, supporting research, and educating professionals. Volunteering has allowed me to combine my professional training as a Physician Assistant and my passion for TS advocacy in a meaningful way. I’m excited to continue to connect with this community and be a part of the work that TSF is doing!” -Kayla, TSF Professional Membership Program Volunteer
“I choose to volunteer with TSF because I wanted to be able to use my education and skills to provide targeted information and tools to help women and girls with TS to be successful in all aspects of their lives. I hope to accomplish writing many educational and helpful blog posts that promote independence and the development of strong soft skills.” -Skylar, TSF Blog Writer Volunteer
“As someone who was diagnosed with TS at a very young age I know first hand the challenges that come with living with TS. Being involved in the TS Foundation allows me to give and receive support from individuals affected by TS and be apart of a wonderful community of advocates. It is my goal as a volunteer to help increase awareness for individuals with TS and create a supportive and inclusive environment where people with TS can be uplifted and celebrated.” -Taylor, TSF Professional Membership Program Volunteer
“I decided to join TSF because I have been personally affected by this condition. I want to raise awareness, be able to help girls that are struggling with it and join a supportive and amazing community.” -Andrea, TSF Awareness Committee Volunteer
“I am a Latin teacher who is considering a transition to medical communications. To practice my skills in that area, I am volunteering with wonderful organizations like TSF so that I can help out while I learn!” -Catherine, TSF Blog Writer Volunteer
