Get Involved


St. Jude Leadership Society students will learn how to make meaningful connections with peers, mentors and business leaders during interactive training sessions.


Honoring our history


For more than 50 years, children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases have been welcomed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

St. Jude founder Danny Thomas believed that "no child should die in the dawn of life." Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%.

We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.


Inspiring our future


The fight to end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases relies on support and leadership from students around the country.

During a six to eight month period, members will have an opportunity to exercise their leadership skills while raising funds and awareness for the kids of St. Jude.  View membership expectations.

For members who achieve or exceed their St. Jude Leadership Society development goals, this unique shared experience will culminate with the opportunity to visit the St. Jude campus in Memphis, Tennessee.
