Youth Rally

Dear members,

It is a pleasure of Youth Rally to have had your members in volunteering at prior rallies. I am writing to make another request for volunteers from the Wound Ostomy Continence Nurse Society.

As you are aware, the “Youth Rally hosts kids and teens living with conditions of the bowel and bladder at a college campus for a 5-night one of a kind camp experience that promotes independence, self-esteem, learning, friendship, and FUN!”

A critical component of Youth Rally are the team nurses with big and kind hearts.  This year, Youth Rally will take place July 8-13 (volunteers arrive July 6th for orientation) in Seattle, Washington.
2019 applications are now live and can be found at

If any members or colleagues are interested in volunteering, please feel free to contact me at 516-406-6059,

Thank You,
Rachelle Sideris, ACNS, MSN, RN, CWOCN
Co-medical director
