Volunteer Services

Thank you for your interest in joining Boston Children's Hospital Volunteer Services! 
We are fortunate that there are so many individuals interested in volunteering at Boston Children's. We presently have a diverse, trained group of more than 1,000 individuals who selflessly devote thousands of hours each year to support the hospital staff and our patients and families.  Whether playing with children during waiting times, helping families find their way in the halls or answering phones, the volunteers at Children's make a difference providing a special human connection that often eases the stress for patients and families going through difficult times.

The application process for a  Fall 2015 start is closed.
Please check back periodically as we will post open assignments as they become available.  Visit the Special Assignments page where you will find current opportunities.
