A large and diverse group of volunteers give their time, support and expertise to keep the St. Luke Foundation growing, spreading the word, and supporting the leadership team in Haiti. Learn more below.
These U.S.- and Canada-based volunteers make an enormous impact by spreading the word about our programs in Haiti, reaching out to friends or potential partners, hosting events, or just keeping our work in mind as opportunities arise. Every ambassador works in his or her own way.
Our Junior Ambassadors are high-school students who complete service learning, internships, and outreach to schools through our Building Bridges Program.
Interested in becoming an ambassador?
Clinicians and teaching professionals interested in visiting Haiti and working together with our staff are invited to reach out to begin a dialogue! Continuing education and specialty care is a big part of what we do, and wed be grateful to be in touch with you.
The first step is to fill out a short questionnaire. We'll be in touch to keep the conversation moving!
A collection of long-time friends who donate significant time and professional skills to support and encourage the vision of the Haitian leadership team.
