Volunteer & Community
From nationwide volunteer events to spreading awareness in your local community, there are many ways to get involved with the Epilepsy Foundation. Every day, our volunteers work toward a common goal of improving the lives of people with epilepsy and seizures.
How Can You Volunteer in Your Community?
For more than 50 years, volunteers from across the country have worked with us to help people in the epilepsy community. Our volunteers make an impact both nationally and locally, including:
- Spreading epilepsy awareness in their communities
- Advocating for federal and state initiatives that impact everyone living with the epilepsies
- Educating others about epilepsy and inspiring more people to take action together to fight epilepsy
- Organizing fundraising events that expand our reach to the thousands of people with epilepsy who need help
We rely on people like you to continue the fight against epilepsy. Explore the different ways you can get involved and volunteer in the epilepsy community.
