About the Young Leaders Caucus

The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network Young Leaders Caucus is the ideal space for volunteers, aged 18-35, to connect and engage in cancer advocacy throughout the year. The Young Leaders Caucus fosters opportunities to connect young people to the work of ACS CAN and to others with similar interests. We work to elevate the perspectives of young people, including cancer survivors, about childhood and AYA, to inform and influence ACS CAN priorities and considerations.
