Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are very important to the daily function of the Epilepsy Foundation Washington (EFWA). Volunteering can be a rich, rewarding experience. EFWA hosts numerous opportunities for volunteers to plug-in on a short term or long term basis – whatever fits your schedule!

Our volunteers are expected to follow all policies and expectations set forth by the Advisory Board. In accordance with policy, EFWA will conduct background checks on all volunteers working with children. All volunteer positions are unpaid.

Community Action Network (CAN) Volunteer Program

EFWA receives hundreds of calls a year for a representative to talk to a service club, school or company. CAN Volunteers (see CAN Volunteer section) volunteer to help start Walk teams and raise funds for EFWA, provide public speaking and/or one-to-one support and sharing of one’s personal experience with epilepsy. CAN Volunteer training sessions to become a certified CAN Volunteer are available through EFWA.
