The volunteers who donate their time to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia play an important role in the experience of our patients and families.
They work alongside healthcare professionals, help in clinical and non-clinical areas, and support the Hospital's mission to care for not just the patient, but the entire family.
The Volunteer Services Department at CHOP requires that candidates interested in volunteering commit to 100 hours of service. The minimum a volunteer can provide service hours through a regular volunteer placement is once a week for a period of 3 hours.
Applicants will have to complete all of the following before volunteering at CHOP.
The screening process at CHOP may take 6 to 8 weeks depending on how fast clearances are sent to the Volunteer Services Department. Going through part or all of the screening process does not guarantee a volunteer placement. All volunteer placements are filled according to current hospital needs and the volunteer’s time commitment.
Volunteers at CHOP give of themselves each day to make patients, families and staff smile. We want to say, “Thank you!”
