Become a Hospital Volunteer
St. Jude Medical Center is honored to have over 700 volunteers annually,
providing non-clinical support to patients, visitors, and staff. Our volunteers
assist more than 75 departments, from escorting patients and visitors
throughout the hospital to running internal errands, providing clerical
support, and more. Volunteers also help in a variety of off-site locations,
including the St. Jude Medical Center Plaza, Knott Family Endoscopy Center,
and the Outpatient Testing Center.
Volunteers must make a one-year commitment, with a minimum of 100 hours
of service. If you are interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities
