Volunteering at Cincinnati Children's

Volunteers at Cincinnati Children's are an integral part of everything we do. Their energy, commitment and dedication help Cincinnati Children's change the outcome for patients.

Cincinnati Children's volunteers fill a wide variety of roles throughout the hospital and our neighborhood locations, as well as at events benefiting the medical center. Each role is crucial in advancing our vision to be the leader in improving child health. Whether volunteers are reading a book to a child, sewing a quilt for a new patient, helping to beautify hospital grounds or handing out water at a fundraising walk, they are supporting our patients and families.

      • Please note, we cannot accommodate service hour requests and in-hospital opportunities are very limited due to strict infection control policies that keep our patients and families safe. We will try our best to accommodate your request but we would also encourage you to plan a toy drive or host your own fundraising event as equally impactful alternatives.
