Becoming a Member

Our members are considered an integral part of the SickKids team as they interact directly and indirectly with patients and their families. They find their volunteer commitment meaningful, rewarding and educational. We welcome applications for our membership year round. For membership inquiries, please visit the Become a Member page.

Please note: The Women's Auxiliary Volunteers is closing our applications until November 2017 as we are at near capacity.  We are grateful to have so many fantastic volunteers and are working hard to increase the availability for even more enthusiastic women. Current openings are limited to the specific time slots of Friday morning and afternoon.  Please check back with us in November for more information. Thank you.
