Volunteering at Children's

With the guidance of the Children’s staff, volunteers work a set weekly schedule within one of the following hospital areas:

  • Direct patient care
  • Customer service
  • Administrative support

We select a limited number of applicants each month to interview for available placements. Volunteers are chosen by matching your interests and availability with our most urgent needs. Although we are continually assessing the volunteer needs of Children’s, we may not be able to match your interests and availability with our current opportunities. All applications are kept on file and reviewed for three months.
