Volunteer Description

Do you like to post on message boards, blog, or communicate through social networking tools? Then volunteer from the convenience of you own home! Tell people about epilepsy and make a huge difference for those affected by the condition!

We need you to help us get information out about epilepsy. With your help, we will ensure that people with seizures are able to participate in all life experiences; and will prevent, control and cure epilepsy through research, education, advocacy and services.

* Students in highschool are enouraged to apply to fulfill their volunteer hours.


* Writing/Typing
* Reading
* Willingness to help others
* 2 hours a month committment
* Computer knowledge
* Connection to the internet

Here is how it works:
Look for posts from one of our affilate offices and reply back to that person with the amount of hours you can dedicate to their project. Someone from the affiliate office will contact you if you are a good match for their project.

Hope all is well with everyone. I am now seizure free for 8 years after the corrective surgery, and trying to get my drivers license. I am also trying to become a volunteer with my local chapter for Epileptic Foundation Northwest. I hope to be able to support others that have seizure activity still and start a support group in the Bend Redmond area in Oregon.

Hope everyone is doing well in here today. So far I have not had a seizure in awhile, and I am hoping to keep it that way. Though I am going to speak to my doctor about a service dog.

I would be happy to try to volunteer some time to helping the cause.  I currently have seizures myself and they can't seem to quite figure out what's "causing the storm" in my head.  So if I can help some other people out, great!  I was volunteering at the hospital and going to college but had to stop because of the toll my seizures were taking on me.  It's also hard being a mom too!    Just let me know where I can help out.
