College and Adult Volunteers
As a volunteer, you can support our patients and families by volunteering on patient floors and in office settings. Volunteers create their schedule by selecting one 4-hour shift, on the same day and same time to volunteer each week for a minimum commitment of six months. Uniform tops are required for college and adult volunteers. From May through August, college students returning locally for the summer may participate in a special summer program.

Teen Volunteer Program
Children’s & Women’s Hospital currently is not accepting teen volunteers.
Volunteering with Children’s & Women’s Hospital as a teen can be a valuable personal growth experience, as well as a wonderful way to support and invest in our community. Teen volunteers must be 15 years of age and have completed their freshman year of high school. Volunteers will be assigned to one 4-hour shift on the same day and time each week for eight weeks. Available shifts are Monday through Friday. No late evening or weekend shifts. Teen Volunteer summer session is short (June to July). We ask that absences be kept to a minimum during this time. Teen volunteers are required to wear volunteer uniforms. For more detailed information about the Teen Volunteer Program, please contact us at 251-415-1123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ronald McDonald House Family Room Volunteers
Two Ronald McDonald House Family Rooms are available for family members of hospitalized children. Located on the third and fourth floors of the children’s tower, the rooms are equipped with private restrooms and showers, laundry facilities, television and Wi-Fi connections, and a kitchenette stocked with snacks and beverages. Volunteers are on hand to make sure the rooms are well maintained and to assist family members if needed as they seek a quiet place during often stressful times.
Pet therapy is regarded as an effective treatment for patients of all ages. USA Health’s Paws of Love pet therapy program provides stress relief and mental stimulation, encourages communication, and even lessens the effects of depression and anxiety in patients. We would be happy to have your “Pet Partner Certified” pup bring a smile to our patients’ faces. Volunteers must be willing to commit to one visit per month. For more information about becoming part of the certified Pet Partner team, visit petpartners.org so you can volunteer your pet today.
We welcome volunteers to help with hospital-related special events. If you are interested in one of our events, contact Rebekah Blanchard with the Office of Volunteer Services at 251-415-1123 or email@example.com.
