Make a difference in the lives of families impacted by cancer
We’re growing our staff team to support families affected by childhood cancer in Northern California.
Okizu (oak-eye-zoo) comes from the Sioux language and means unity, to come together, to heal from a hurt, to make whole.
The mission of Okizu is to help all members of families affected by childhood cancer to heal through peer support, respite, mentoring, and recreational programs.
For more than 40 years, Okizu has been committed to the continuing support of the Oncology, Siblings, Family, Bereavement, and Teens-N-Twenties programs. These programs are the result of a collaborative effort between Okizu and the pediatric oncology treatment centers in Northern California. The specific purpose of Okizu is to operate peer support programs for children and families affected by childhood cancer based on the community-forming nature of a residential camp experience.
You believe in the mission of Okizu to help all members of families affected by childhood cancer to heal through peer support, mentoring, respite and recreational programs.
You are organized and efficient.
You work well on a team and have exceptional communication skills.
You are a problem solver – we love our jobs and have an amazing mission, but our work isn’t easy and you must rise to the challenge with a positive attitude.
