Children's Hospital offers volunteering programs for adults, college students, and high school students. A volunteer session lasts about six months, with two sessions offered per year.
We offer several types of hands-on volunteer experiences to fit different schedules, preferences, and experience levels.

College Volunteer Program
Due to a strong response from the community, we have reached capacity for new college volunteer applications for our spring and summer months.
Our Fall 2017 volunteer recruitment season for college students will be open August 21 through September 1, 2017. Please return to access the online volunteer application at that time.
Short-term College Summer Program
Our current application session for this program is now closed. The next volunteer recruitment will begin March 2018.
High School Strive Program
The application process for this program is closed. The next recruitment will begin February 2018.
Because of the nature of our work and the commitment level 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, please consider donating or entertaining.
