Children's Ambassadors

Children's Ambassadors are young professionals from across the city who are committed to improving the lives of patients and families at St. Louis Children's Hospital through volunteering, donating and spreading awareness. The Ambassadors engage with St. Louis Children's Hospital throughout the year. Please contact Emily Heaton Miller emily.heatonmiller@bjc.org to learn more about joining this group of committed young adults who are making a difference in the lives of our patients and families.

Below are some examples of the engagement opportunities Ambassadors will take part in.

Engagement Opportunities*:

  1. VIP Tour
    • Join us for a tour of the Healthy Kids Express dental van! Did you know that Children's Hospital has a dental team going out into the St. Louis community to perform cleanings, take x-rays and fill cavities right in our dental van at NO COST to families? This is your opportunity to meet our amazing dental team, tour their brand new van and learn about what's still needed in our community. We'll also have food trucks and time to meet your fellow Ambassadors before and after the presentation.
  2. Community Building Experience
    • Join us for a fun night of dinner, drinks and learning! This event is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow Ambassadors and gain an in-depth understanding of the work taking place at Children's Hospital.
  3. St. Louis Executive Panel
    • This event will feature a panel of local executives and prominent community leaders speaking about the role philanthropy has played in their careers, among other topics. This is a great chance to network with panelists and your fellow Ambassadors!
    • More details coming soon!
  4. Give Back at St. Louis Children's Hospital
    • Join us during the holiday season to give back at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Volunteer alongside other Ambassadors and see firsthand the impact you are making in the lives of our patients and families.
