Looking for a way to get more involved in a cause you care about? Become a volunteer with the Siegel Rare Neuroimmune Association! We are excited for you to show your passion to connect, care, and accelerate research for a cure for rare neuroimmune disorders. Below you can find some examples of how you can volunteer for SRNA.
Since 2013 we’ve helped more than 40 volunteers organize a Walk-Run-N-Roll event in their area. These fundraisers not only help raise money for our programs but also raise awareness and provide emotional support to our community. Our team will help you throughout the process by providing tips for success, designing sponsor packets, postcards, webpages, email announcements, securing locations, and more. If you have a background in event planning or have a desire to make a difference in the lives of those affected by rare neuroimmune disorders, fill out an application today!
Become a Support Group Leader
We currently have more than 20 dedicated Support Group Leaders providing online and in-person support to our community. These volunteers are often the first line of contact for those who are newly diagnosed. Support Group Leaders offer hope and timely information. Our team will help you by offering an online training program, an official SRNA email address, securing guest speakers when possible, creating event pages, email announcements, and more. Become a Support Group Leader today!
We offer several resources for our community, including blogs, an SRNA Magazine, podcasts, video recordings from past symposia, information fact sheets, and more. Do you have a background in writing? Do you speak multiple languages? Do you like to be organized? We are looking for volunteers to assist with transcription, translation, and editing.
Due to training demands, we ask for a minimum commitment of one meeting per 3 months for one year (or the equivalent of four meetings) for Support Group Leaders and a 6-month commitment for Administrative Volunteers. Make sure to check out our Volunteer Handbook for in-depth details about what it means to volunteer for SRNA.
What are the perks of volunteering?
Volunteers receive free registration to SRNA organized events such as the Rare Neuroimmune Disorders Symposium. Once certain time and/or project commitments are met, there is the opportunity to receive additional benefits in the form of SRNA-branded merchandise. The best benefit of all is the chance to be part of a community of fellow volunteers who are all passionate about SRNA and helping our community!
What is the age requirement?
18 is our age minimum, but exceptions may be made for school projects or other opportunities.
How do I apply?
Please fill out the volunteer application form. Should your background, availability, and interest meet our needs, we will be in touch about an interview. All SRNA volunteers must successfully complete a background and reference check.
