There are a number of ways to join us in our mission.

We would love to have you!



CKG offers a number of volunteer opportunities for all ages. 

From staffing an information table or representing our mission and providing hope at a community event, to cheering on runners

at one of our SpeakUp5k races, there are a variety of ways to volunteer your time and talent to promote our mission of raising awareness around mental health, erasing stigmas, providing education and tools that help. We value our amazing, mission critical volunteers and work hard to create community among them. 


A CKG Ambassador is a spokesman for our mission. Through training you will learn how to proudly represent CKG at events and the community.

To learn more about upcoming trainings, email Lindsey Thomas.



CKG SpeakUp Clubs are student-led organizations based in individual schools which focus on

the mental health and wellness of its students.  With versions for both high school and college, they promote positivity, encourage kindness, and strive to create an environment of inclusiveness in area schools.

Each school’s SpeakUp Club creates their own expression of this purpose on campus. 

CKG provides each club a start-up manual with suggested activities as well as collaterals for building mental

health awareness and CKG branding.  Additionally, CKG facilitates brainstorm sessions and provides follow up support as each club executes its plan with associated campaigns or activities.  SpeakUp Club members are asked to commit to being ambassadors of positive conversations about mental health and to

practice kindness every day. This way students lead by example and support ending the stigma

associated with mental health.
