Volunteer Opportunities at CHOP
Volunteer Services at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia offers opportunities for all different types of volunteer work. Take a look at our four volunteer categories to determine which option is right for you, and to learn about volunteer requirements.
Adult & College Student
- Volunteers over the age of 18 who are able to make a significant time commitment may be a fit to volunteer at CHOP. There are many different ways that our adult volunteers can compliment professional services in our patient care areas and provide support to our patients and families to make their experience at CHOP better.
- Are you and your dog currently certified by Delta Society, Therapy Dogs International, Therapy Dogs Inc or Comfort Caring Canines? If so, you might be a fit for pet therapy volunteering through Paw Partners.
- We offer a limited number of spots each summer for volunteers between the ages of 16 and 18 who are currently enrolled in high school. We offer volunteer positions that provide high school students the opportunity to give of their time while gaining valuable hands-on experience and educational opportunities within a medical setting.
Group & Entertainment
- Are you or a group interested in a one-time volunteer opportunity at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia? Since much of our daily programming allows ample craft and play opportunities, we welcome your creativity in proposing a visit which will provide our patients with a unique and memorable activity.
