Volunteers are needed to provide hospital tours for the thousands of guests that visit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital each year. Tours are provided for the general public at 10:00 am and at 1:00 pm Monday through Friday and on some Saturdays. Tours are also scheduled by ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude, during seminars, summits, conferences, and partner/donor visits to the St. Jude campus. The tour experience plays a critical role in ALSAC's fundraising and awareness efforts. Tours typically take an hour to an hour and a half to conduct and tour group sizes are 10 or less.
Those interested in becoming a volunteer St. Jude Tour Guide guide are encouraged to participate in a public tour prior to applying for the tour guide role. Experiencing a tour first hand will help you understand what the role entails and determine if it is something you want to pursue. Applying today is the first step in the process. Once you apply, someone from ALSAC will contact you to discuss the role and the process for becoming certified, i.e. screening requirements, training, certification, time commitment, etc.
Giving tours is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have as an ALSAC volunteer. You have the opportunity to share the St. Jude story with thousands of visitors and encourage them to become even more committed supporters to the St. Jude Mission: Finding Cures. Saving Children. You will be helping to save lives!
