Hospital & Clinic Volunteer Opportunities

A volunteer session generally lasts about six months, and we offer two sessions each year. We have several types of hands-on volunteer experiences to fit different schedules, preferences, and level of experience.

Start exploring our 2016 Volunteer Opportunities.

Because of the nature of our work and the level of commitment we need from our volunteers, we are unable to offer a short-term volunteer experience for individuals and groups. If a regular session isn't a fit for you, the two opportunities below may be better options:

Toy & Supply Donations

Entertainment Opportunity
