Your Kidneys & You Presenter
Dates: Nov 19, 2020 - Mar 31, 2022
You can support NKF's kidney health awareness efforts through Your Kidneys and You (YK&Y), a signature program where volunteers are trained to help educate local communities through an in-person or web-based PowerPoint presentation. Put your public speaking skills to use and help us to engage with the public and those at-risk.
As an NKF volunteer, the Volunteer Presenter for the Your Kidneys and You (YKAY) program will act as an ambassador of our mission and represent the organization with professionalism and compassion for the public and those we serve. The Volunteer Presenter will deliver the Your Kidneys and You presentation in communities.
