With the guidance of the Children’s staff, volunteers work a set weekly schedule within one of the following hospital areas:
- Administrative Support
- Customer Service
- Direct Patient Care
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 reviewed for placement for up to three months.
