AFTD Regional Coordinator Volunteer

AFTD’s regional coordinator volunteers are the “local” ambassadors for AFTD and the principal coordinator of volunteer activities focusing on awareness, fundraising and all other aspects of the mission in his/her region. They represent AFTD throughout their region and support the volunteers. Questions not related to volunteering should be directed to AFTD’s HelpLine at 866-507-7222 or [email protected] and an AFTD staff member will be happy to assist you.
