Volunteer at Boston Children's Hospital!

Thank you for your interest in joining Boston Children's Hospital Volunteer Services!


One-Year Program

General Information

A few times a year, we open up our One Year Program to new applicants, ages 18 and older. We ask that these volunteers complete one four-hour shift per week for the duration of one year. We review applications on a first-come, first-serve basis, and keep a wait list for those who are eligible but beyond our current capacity needs. If you are interested in a particular session, please check this web page two to three months before the start of your chosen program for instructions on how to apply.

Placement will be made on an individual basis. Additionally, the volunteer will assist their supervisor with any other needs, such as unit programming, preparing materials for special events and helping to organize and maintain a safe, clean environment while assisting with toy washing.

Location: Main Campus, 300 Longwood Avenue, Boston MA

Deadline: The Reference Form is due within 1 week of submitting the online application. We will follow up with all applicants via email within 3-4 weeks of our recruitment date.
