High School Student Volunteer

Get experience and give back as a volunteer

 

High school volunteers like you play an important role in helping the families Children’s Mercy serves have a positive experience.

From helping families find where they are going to entertaining kids in the waiting room, you’ll make a BIG difference in any role you take on. And, you’ll earn credit for volunteering!

As a high school student volunteer, you can’t shadow the medical staff or watch procedures, but you will get experience in a hospital setting and make a difference for kids and families when they need it most.

The next opportunity for high school students to volunteer will be our Summer 2022 Student Program. Please check back in the coming months for more information and how to apply!
