The Children's Hospital Volunteers
Our volunteers help provide a positive, caring and compassionate experience for patients and families while they are in the hospital. Volunteers have a huge impact on our charity and provide the time and hands-on help that make our programs possible.

Before you apply, please read a little more about the volunteer programs for our charity.
We ask our volunteers to commit to 12 months of volunteering.
How often do volunteers come?
We require 1 shift per week for 3 hours. Additional days and hours can certainly be added to your shift. Please speak to your volunteer supervisor about this during your interview.
