Mission & Purpose
Founded in 2015, the mission of the Ranken Jordan Young Professionals Board is to support patients of the hospital and their families while promoting the “Care Beyond the Bedside” model within the St. Louis young professional community.
Through fundraising efforts, volunteer activities, and peer education, the Young Professionals Board members serve with the same innovation and relationship building skills that helped establish Ranken Jordan in 1941. By joining us, you will foster leadership skills, enhance your professional network and credibility, and build invaluable relationships that could benefit you for a lifetime. Above all, this is an opportunity for you to get involved with a local organization that is making waves and changing lives across the nation.
Members of the Young Professionals Board are expected to:
- Be between the age of 21-40
- Attend 75% of Board Meetings
- Support two Young Professionals Board events annual through attendance, sponsorship, planning, etc.
- Serve on one of the four Young Professionals Board Committees
- Recruit event attendees, event sponsors, and/or potential new members
In addition to participating in various fundraisers and volunteer opportunities hosted by the hospital, the Young Professionals Board puts on its own events. Some of our biggest past successes include
- Trivia Night
- Chris Cakes Charity Challenge
- Ranken Jordan Gala After Party
