Be A Volunteer

We need you.

Have a passion for healthy living and an interest in volunteering? You’re in the right place!

The Skinny Gene Project frequently has a variety of opportunities that will allow you to use your unique talents to end the trend of type 2 diabetes. Not sure if you have what it takes to join Skinny Gene’s Volunteer Team? Let’s find out!

Do you like ….greeting people, writing, cooking, designing, taking pictures, making videos, translating, teaching, and/or having lots of fun? Are you dependable, energetic, detail oriented, and/or a “born leader”? 

If you’ve answered “YES” to any of these questions, and you are 18 years of age or older, you belong on Team Skinny Gene.

How will it make a difference?

Just like many people we serve, we need support. When you volunteer with the Skinny Gene Project, you help us to improve upon and/or expand our programs so we can have a much greater impact on those in need. 

When it comes to ending the trend of diabetes, 1 is a very important number. If we don’t act now, 1 in 3 Americans will develop diabetes. With your help we can provide those at-risk with the encouragement, guidance, and resources they need to make prevention more than a possibility. You can be the 1 to make prevention a reality.
