School’s Out Program
Cincinnati Children’s also welcomes high school student volunteers in patient care areas every summer through the School’s Out Program. Teen volunteers help in areas such as activity centers and outpatient clinics in addition to providing clerical support in departments throughout the hospital, both at the main campus and at our neighborhood locations. We ask our summer volunteers, who must be at least 15 years old by June 1, to make a weekly commitment of two to three hours and plan to miss no more than two scheduled shifts over the course of the summer.
