CORE Volunteer Leadership Program

CORE Leadership Volunteers are crucial to the mission of Remote Area Medical. They are the culture carriers that help lead operations.

“I feel like I’m at home. I feel like I offer something of value to people. I feel like people value me. It’s a feeling of family and friendship”
