Be The Match Volunteer Ambassador/Intern - Philadelphia/Pennsylvania

Are you a passionate leader? Then we need you!

Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. A matching blood stem cell transplant is the only cure. And while most people believe a match is easily found within the family, 70% of all patients need to reach out into the community for help. YOU could help find their life-saving match!

As a Volunteer Ambassador you will:

  • Earn volunteer hours
  • Coordinate, organize, and work live drives
  • Assist your Be The Match Community Engagement Specialist with other volunteers and community development
  • Lead drives without your Be The Match Community Engagement Specialist on-site
  • Invited to attend large Be The Match events such as our annual 5k 
  • Invited to attend corporate events

Additionally, if you are a college student you could:

  • Complete intern program hours towards your degree
  • Present Be The Match to clubs and organizations on campus to educate 
  • Create a college Be The Match on Campus student organization for ongoing advocacy
  • Potentially qualify for book scholarship and grant programs 

This is our highest-level volunteer position where you will work together with your Local Be The Match Community Engagement Specialist to:

  • Share patient stories both online and within your school or community 
  • Use your own social media platform to post educational information about our mission to expand and diversify the Be The Match registry
  • Understand detailed knowledge on how to join the Be The Match registry 

Volunteer Ambassadors will receive in-depth training and on-going personal support and connection with their Community Engagement Specialist to help us at Be The Match to educate, raise awareness, and increase and diversify the marrow registrations.
