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.

Thank you for your interest in volunteer opportunities at SickKids. The SickKids volunteering site will be unavailable from August 24 (4 p.m.) to August 29 (8 a.m.) while we make scheduled system upgrades to improve our service to you. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
