VOLUNTEER APPLICATION

Volunteer Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis for volunteers comfortable attending our events. If you have questions, please contact your Team Lead or the Dream Day Foundation office at 225.754.5700 or info@dreamdayfoundation.org. 

Completing the Volunteer Application below is the first step in becoming a volunteer with Dream Day Foundation.  This form is not a registration for any event, including Fishin’ Galore.  A separate registration form will be required for each event for which you’d like to volunteer.  Registration forms are published throughout the year and can be found under the Events tab.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT FISHIN’ GALORE

Fishin’ Galore is a special event for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (and affiliate clinics) patients and their immediate families. Without our dedicated volunteers this annual event would not be possible. Since 1994, the event has grown significantly and we ask for your cooperation to register and work with your Team Lead in order to make the day run as efficiently and safely as possible. The day is all about the St. Jude patients and their families.

Fishin’ Galore is a Private, Invitation Only Program. Volunteers are invited by a Fishin’ Galore Team Lead, the Dream Day Foundation Executive Director or a Dream Day Foundation Board Member. If you have not been invited by a Fishin’ Galore Team Lead, the Dream Day Foundation Executive Director or a Dream Day Foundation Board Member, please give us a call before completing the Volunteer Application.
