The Adult Volunteer Program encompasses a diverse set of individuals including working professionals and individuals who are retired performing in a variety of roles to benefit the patients and families. Adult volunteers gain valuable experience, learn new skills, and make friends.
Adult Volunteer Opportunities

Please note that our volunteers provide services that are strictly comforting in nature and volunteers are not able to shadow nurses, doctors and clinicians, or to take vital signs and observe procedures.
