College Student volunteers make a difference for our patients, families, visitors, and staff everyday. College Student Volunteers are active throughout the hospital.
College Student Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers can deliver packages and mail to our patients, greet visitors and help them navigate through the hospital, bring comfort and distraction to patients and their siblings through play,and enhance the overall hospital experience for all of our guests. 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.
