Become a volunteer with the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program




Garden City
New York
United States


Breast cancer survivors are encouraged to apply and train to become volunteers with the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program. Training will be held at Adelphi University in Garden City, in September and October. There is a choice of daytime or evening training.


Volunteers can service on the program’s hotline, answering calls from people concerned about breast cancer. They also can help by doing community outreach, fundraising, office work and educational presentations. 


Volunteers are required to take in-depth training, which includes breast education, development of important skills, such as active listening, community outreach and knowledge of community resources. The volunteers also have continuing education throughout the year.


To find out about the training, contact social worker Alida Rubenstein at or (516) 877-4315.


The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program is the oldest breast cancer hotline in the country, established by breast cancer survivors at the Adelphi School of Social Work in 1980. To reach the hotline, call 800-877-8077. You are not alone.
