Why volunteer at SickKids?

Volunteering at SickKids presents exciting new learning opportunities and enriching experiences.  

The benefits to volunteering are endless.  Whether it be through direct or indirect interaction with patients and their families, you will help to improve the quality of care and the overall hospital experience.  

As a volunteer, you are an integral member of the SickKids team.  We depend on volunteers to enhance the programs and services we offer and to assist staff in providing the finest standards of healthcare that align with our SickKids mission, vision and values.

There are many ways to share your valued ‘Gift of Time’, while making  a positive contribution to the Hospital. We have a wide variety of volunteer programs and positions to suit your interests and your schedule.

There are volunteer opportunities available with Volunteer Resources, the Women's Auxiliary and by participating in clinical research at SickKids with Research4kids.

The children and families we care for are diverse, and so are our volunteers. All are welcome to join our unique organizational culture and be part of our inclusive team.
