Help Beat Cancer: Join a Team or Support One in UAlbany’s Relay for Life

 ALBANY, N.Y. (April 6, 2012) — UAlbany students are seeking support for their 2012 Relay for Life efforts on April 14-15 at the SEFCU Arena. More than 1,300 people comprising 127 teams have signed up but they need help reaching their goal of raising $100,000 to fight cancer.

See the 2011 Relay For Life event at UAlbanyMany families have a loved one who is battling the disease, know a cancer survivor, or have lost a family member to this disease. At the Relay for Life, UAlbany students, faculty and staff volunteers give up a night’s sleep to walk all night, raise awareness about cancer, and honor and support their friends and family.

Since 2005, UAlbany students have raised approximately $550,000 for this charity. To sign up or to donate, go to Relay for Life of UAlbany.

Summer Employment in Albany Area – Albany’s Summer Youth Employment Program for Ages 14-18

Albany’s Summer Youth Employment Program provides Albany youth ages 14-18 five weeks of summer employment.  Over the years, this very popular program has provided many of our young people their first experiences into the world of work.


The program is in need of volunteers to help the young people fill out their registration forms and provide some guidance on what work site would best suit their interests and needs.  This is a short-term volunteer stint which will provide invaluable help to our youth. As you can see from the attached, Summer Youth Employment “Application Clinics” will be made available during the lunch time periods in five schools, as well as afternoon sessions at four libraries.


Training will be provided for all volunteers.


If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions,  please call Laila Amir at 210-7710.
