The Look Good Feel Better Volunteer Recognition and Award Program salutes the following milestones and exceptional services.
Volunteer Training and Certification Recognition
New volunteers attend a four-hour, in-person certification class before beginning their Look Good Feel Better volunteer work. Existing volunteers attend a two-hour update class every two years for continuing education and to learn about updates in the Look Good Feel Better program.
Volunteers who complete a certification class receive a Certificate of Recognition and a new volunteer packet. Those who complete their biannual update class receive an Update Class Certificate.
For information on scheduled training classes, please contact your local American Cancer Society office.
Recognition and Awards Program
Every year, Look Good Feel Better honors volunteers who consistently give their time to support the program. Cosmetologists are honored with a framed Certificate of Service after completing four group programs in a one-year period. General volunteers receive Certificates of Service annually.
In addition, long-serving volunte'ers are honored at critical service milestones with Look Good Feel Better recognition gifts:
Five years: Look Good Feel Better silver frame

Fifteen years: Look Good Feel Better silver clock

The prestigious State Sunrise Awards are given to exceptional volunteers in three categories: NCA-certified cosmetologists, Look Good Feel Better – certified cosmetologists, and general volunteers. Individuals are nominated by peers and selected by committee.
Each year, Look Good Feel Better also gives three national awards to outstanding volunteers who have provided extraordinary service to the Look Good Feel Better program. Individuals are nominated by peers and selected by committee. The first National Sunrise Awards were presented in 1994, marking the 15th anniversary of the program, and since that time, 48 volunteers have received this honor.
