One morning a month! Down Syndrome Center at Children's Hospital

Do you have one Tuesday morning a month to spare? Consider volunteering at the Down Syndrome Center at St. Louis Children's Hospital! We are in need of volunteers to give their time on the last Tuesday of every month to help support families who have a child with Down syndrome.
As a Down Syndrome Center volunteer, you will collect and/or update the family's information for the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis. You will also inform families about the DSAGSL- who we are and the support programs we offer such as family events, educational conferences, local community groups, newsletters, a library, and more. You'll answer any questions they have as best you can- but we don't expect you to know everything!
This opportunity is great for retirees looking to give their time! Having a connection to Down syndrome (relative, friend, former professional, etc.) is preferred but not necessarily required. Volunteers will undergo training through the Children's Hospital and a blood test and TB test.
We would like people to commit a minimum of 6 months to the Down Syndrome Center, but preferably longer if you are able. Due to this commitment, we discourage students from this opportunity.
If you would like more information about this opportunity, please email or call 314-961-2504 ext. 101

  1. I would love to volunteer for something like this. If I had my Tuesday mornings open I would go for it in a heartbeat. My best friend in the first grade had downs syndrome and she was the sweetest girl ever. I seriously miss her.
