We want to make the volunteer experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible for you and make sure you know what to expect along the way.
Working closely with patients at Cincinnati Children’s requires thorough medical screening for the safety of everyone. All necessary medical information will be discussed during the interview. These requirements, which will be offered at no cost to year-round volunteers, include but are not limited to:
What is the time commitment for Cincinnati Children's volunteers?
We ask that our adult volunteers commit to a weekly schedule of two to three hours for one year. If you are unable to make this commitment, you may want to explore the possibility of volunteering with special events that benefit our hospital.
What is the process to become a volunteer?
I have a group of friends from work. Will we be able to take turns volunteering one evening a week? Will we be able to come as a group?
Our requirements are the same for all volunteers. We require each individual to volunteer the same day and time and in the same area each week. Regular weekly commitment has been shown to result in a more satisfying experience for the volunteer and is most helpful to supervisory staff. While we cannot accommodate groups in traditional volunteer roles, your group might enjoy contributing in other ways, such as community fundraising.
I just graduated from college and I'm looking for a job. Could I begin to volunteer while I'm looking?
We suggest that you concentrate on finding a job first. Once you have secured employment, you’ll have a better idea of what days and times will work best for you and whether volunteering will fit into your weekly schedule.
I have a talent that I would like to share with the patients. How would I schedule a special visit?
Special visitors, including sports teams and entertainers, are handled through the Child Life Department. If you or your group has a special talent or activity to share, you can find guidelines and an application on Child Life's Special Visitors page.
