Volunteer Tour Guide for Professional Staff »
Location: Main Campus
Hours: 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. or 3:45 p.m. – 4:45 p.m. | Tuesday – Friday
Volunteers provide an hour tour of Cleveland Clinic main campus for professional staff during their pre-employment orientation day. Each volunteer will be trained to give an engaging tour of main campus for 4-8 newly hired professional staff members. Since this volunteer assignment is only one hour, it can be combined with 2-3 hour shifts in another volunteer role elsewhere (Emergency Department, Nursing Unit, etc.). This role requires a very reliable volunteer with an outgoing and friendly personality along with a professional appearance.

We are looking for compassionate, engaging individuals who like to help others and can stand and walk 3 - 4 hours at a time.
