Champion Our Cause: Join the TS Alliance Volunteer Movement
“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than than the grandest intention.” Oscar Wilde
The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance is seeking volunteers to serve as champions for our cause. We need your help to facilitate local connections for those affected by TSC, raise revenue and increase awareness while supporting the mission of our organization.
There are numerous ways to participate as a volunteer at the TS Alliance with a position to fit anyone who is interested in being a part of our team. Click on the positions below to learn more about each opportunity and apply for the position you decide is best-suited for you.
Volunteers are needed for the following positions:
- Community Fund Raising – Organize a special event in your local community to raise funds for the TS Alliance.
- Community Alliances – Join one of our volunteer branches in 37 locations across the United States. Community Alliances host educational meetings, organize special events, raise awareness and serve as a resource in their local TSC communities.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2017 – 2018 Junior Leader Program. Applications will be accepted between June 1 and August 1, 2017. Click here for the program description and application.
The TS Alliance will support your efforts by providing materials, resources and guidance. Become a champion and join our national network of local connections to better serve all those affected by TSC.
The TS Alliance thrives on the service of selfless individuals across the country who give of their time, talent, and resources to help us achieve our mission to find a cure for TSC and improve the lives of those affected. Without them, we would not be where we are today. They have propelled our organization to levels once thought impossible — from the original four volunteer mothers who started the organization in 1974 to nearly 2,000 individuals championing our cause each year today!
Over the past 13 years, the TS Alliance has honored 53 individuals as volunteers of the year at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner in Washington, DC. These are individuals who have made a significant impact in their local TSC communities, as well as the national organization.

In addition, as we strive to acknowledge the impact of our volunteer branches, we have awarded 10 Community Alliance of the Year awards, now named the Dreamer Award. The Community Alliances that have received these awards have ensured that their local TSC communities are heard, supported, and united.
