Your local PKD Syracuse Chapter is currently seeking a volunteer Chapter Co-Coordinator and a volunteer Walk Co-Coordinator.

  • The Chapter Co-Coordinator will work with the Chapter Coordinator to represent the PKD Foundation in the local community and act as a liaison between the Foundation and local constituents. This volunteer position focuses on education, fundraising and support and requires about one hour a week.
  • The Walk Co-Coordinator will work with the Walk Coordinator to organize logistics for the Walk, recruit volunteers, secure sponsorships, and encourage team captains and participants. Responsibilities also include promoting the walk within the community, and raising awareness of PKD and the Foundation. This position requires about one hour a week with more time needed as you approach your Walk event date.

As a local Coordinator, you will be one of the first to hear about mission critical updates when you join a network of more than 100 coordinators across the nation. We have many online support tools and resources and offer in person leadership training in Kansas City in February. The Foundation covers your airfare and most meals for the weekend. It is a great time to meet and connect with other volunteer leaders across the county.
