Our Volunteers Help Kids Feel Like Kids... Instead of Patients
Our families put their trust in you & appreciate your commitment
We've heard your feedback about needing flexibility around your schedule. Starting this spring, we have two commitment levels for full time VOLUNTEERS!
VOLUNTEERS with consistent shift placements commit to at least 1 shift (3 hours) per week for 12 months. These shifts are scheduled for the same day and time each week.
VOLUNTEERS who need variable shifts can commit to 3-6 shifts (9-18 hours) per month for at least 100 hours. Variable shifts do not need to be the same day and time. Instead, they are self-scheduled by each VOLUNTEER. Placements available include Patient Pals, The Zone, Floaters/Projects and Emergency Department.
VOLUNTEERS must be 18 or older and able to complete requirements of on-boarding (steps typically take 4-6 weeks): Application, Interview, Drug Test, Background Check, 2 TB Tests, Training Sessions & $20 for your required VOLUNTEER polo.
Full-Time Volunteers are the Heart of what we do
They provide positive, caring, compassionate experiences for families & their work brings our amazing programs to life. We have placements open for Patient Pals, The Zone & In The Zone TV Studio VOLUNTEERS!
With a spirit of fun, creativity, caring & laughter
SPECIAL EVENTS & PERFORMANCES
Amazing community groups, businesses & organizations sponsor more than 290 special events each year, bringing art experiences, live music, holidays, games & special celebrations to kids at the hospital. These programs make our families’ hospital experiences less scary & more joyful.
