Volunteer Program Planning for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital


The Cause

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures and means of prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment while honoring the memory and heritage of our founder, Danny Thomas. We are leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer.

The Challenge

We are based in Charlotte, NC and control the fundraising in North and South Carolina that supports the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We do not have the connections needed to grow a successful walk/run in the Raleigh Area. We would like a professional to work with us in creating a committed team of volunteers that can help us plan and secure sponsorships for a Raleigh area run/walk.  

The Project: Volunteer Program Planning

Estimated Volunteer Time (Now through April 30):

28-30 hours

See Scope of Work / Project Steps Show

End Result

The project will result in the following deliverables:

  • Updated volunteer leadership team job descriptions suited to the local community (the Triangle).
  • A volunteer outreach plan including proposed demographic targets for volunteers needed, strategies for outreach, and outreach language for each target population.
  • A list of possible targets and target populations for recruiting to fill these volunteer roles.
  • Completed outreach and connections to organization staff.


The impact this person or people could have to our organization is huge! We are working so hard to connect to the Raleigh area and spread the awareness of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We need someone to spread the message and mission that is well connected with Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and surrounding areas. If we can plan for and recruit a volunteer team that is committed to our mission we know that we will be able to hold a successful event in the Raleigh area, raising much needed funds and awareness for St. Jude and the children we serve.
