Youth Opportunities

Get Involved and Make New Friends

There are many ways that you and your family can help NPF and our community of people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

Youth Opportunities

You don’t need a lot of time to make big impact.

For example, if you like an NPF Facebook post, share it with your friends. Tell them to spread it around.

Here are just a few ideas from your friends at Our Spot. (You’ll find even more ideas here.)

Volunteer At a Local Event

The events NPF puts on don’t just happen by themselves! They take lots of volunteers. For every person who is running or riding a bike to raise money for NPF, there are other people who set up the event, help at the registration table, hand out bottles of water, and clean up afterward. Check our calendar for an event near you. We always need help and it’s a great way to meet people!

Become a Psoriatic Psuperhero

Not all heroes fly and wear capes. Our Psoriatic Psuperheroes are heroes because they’re out there telling the world that they’re raising money to help beat psoriatic disease. Become a Psoriatic Psuperhero and dive into the Team NPF schedule of walks, runs and bike rides. You can also participate virtually for all of our upcoming Team NPF events.

Give a Presentation

The general public doesn’t know psoriatic disease the way we do, because we live with it every day. Give a presentation to a local school or organization. We’ll provide all the materials you’ll need. This is your chance to help other people understand psoriatic disease and its impact.

Contact Our Spot for a presentation

Tell Your Story

Do you have a story to tell about living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis? We want to hear how you live – and thrive. You might even see your story in Our Spot, in NPF Advance magazine, or on our social media channels.

Send us your story
