Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford: Volunteer Opportunities for Grand Opening

October 02, 2017 (All day) to October 29, 2017 (All day)

725 Welch Road
Palo Alto, CA

Volunteers are needed for a series of special events and tours throughout the month of October to celebrate the grand opening of the new Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. Volunteers will be essential to the success of the grand opening, and we invite you to be part of the action! 

We need hundreds of volunteers to make these events special. Volunteer roles include greeting and registering guests, acting as a tour stop host or tour escort, providing general event support, etc. Volunteer roles will be assigned in advance and all volunteers will become familiar with their responsibilities through a formal training program taking place in late September. 



Volunteer Requirements:

  • We welcome volunteers ages 14+ to participate in the opening events.
  • Some volunteer roles may require standing or walking for extended periods of time.
  • Some volunteers may be asked to lift and move up to 25 pounds.
  • Some volunteers may be asked to conduct or escort tours and engage in conversations with guests.
  • We will be sure to provide appropriate volunteer placement for those who have mobility or physical limitations. Please contact Brandon Jenkins at to discuss any concerns. 
  • Volunteers must attend a training meeting—this ensures volunteers are prepared, comfortable, and enjoy their experience!

What We Provide:

  • Meals or snacks and awesome volunteer t-shirts and swag!
  • Brief scripts or talking points for your volunteer role – just a few lines, we promise.
  • Training program in late September to ensure you feel comfortable and well-prepared.
  • Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation.
  • And, finally, Brandon, our volunteer guru, is available and happy to answer any questions you may have.
