It's been five years since our first tribe of cancer patients and survivors stepped beyond their stories of cancer to volunteer in India. Since, then more than 140 participants have joined A Fresh Chapter for life-changing experiences in India, South Africa, Peru, Costa Rica, and the U.S. Now, as part of our 5-year anniversary celebration, we are creating an Anthology of AFC Stories of Transformation. We are seeking a talented writer to join our team and help us create compelling content, which will be part of our year-end fundraising campaign.
We currently have an inspiring and engaged group of alumni which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a strong brand and a team with an eye for storeis and the ability to provide any other information you need.
AFC believes our stories are so much bigger than the adversities we face. We love creating opportunities for people to use their unique gifts and talents to make a positive impact on the world.
Our mission is to heal the emotional scars of cancer through volunteerism, meaningful travel and programs designed to reframe adversity and redefine what’s possible
Through both international and U.S. Odyssey programs, A Fresh Chapter (AFC) empowers diverse groups of men and women to step beyond the label of cancer patient, survivor, or caregiver, and into a new world of volunteering, cultural immersion, and personal growth and development. As part of a broader framework of support, our 1-2 week volunteer travel experiences act as a catalyst for helping participants see that struggle is universal and it’s possible to heal, connect, and serve others while reclaiming your life. Our programs in the U.S., India, South Africa, Peru, and Costa Rica have contributed more than 5,000 hours of volunteer service while taking positive action against the isolation, anger, depression, fear of recurrence, or survivor guilt often created by cancer. Whether our participants have returned to work with renewed purpose, healed relationships with loved ones, committed to ongoing volunteering, or even made peace with dying, AFC is revolutionizing cancer support while building stronger families and communities and a better world.
