Adult Volunteer Program

Share:

Children’s Health depends on the invaluable contributions of volunteers. Through the Adult Volunteer Program, diverse individuals, including working professionals, college students, retired persons and seniors perform a variety of roles to benefit our young patients and their families.

Volunteering provides the opportunity for adults to gain valuable experience, learn new skills, make friends and serve people who need their help. Adult volunteers at Children's Health help patients and their families through direct patient care, customer service and staff support. Please note that our volunteers provide services that are strictly non-clinical and are not able to shadow nurses, doctors and clinicians or observe procedures.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Children's Health, where you will make a difference in the lives of children. All of our volunteers serve our patients and families; some serve with them. Each makes a significant contribution.
