Make a difference any day of the week.

Child playing connect 4 in a hospital bed with sibling and nurse

As a Peds Pals volunteer, you will bring board games and coloring books to the inpatient pediatric floor. But, more important, you will have the opportunity to create cheerful moments for families who may face long days of worrying and the challenge of entertaining hospitalized children and their siblings. Whether playing at a young patient's bedside or spending time in the pediatric playroom, Peds Pals volunteers can offer a bright source of comfort and a welcome break for parents.

Our inpatient pediatric unit admits patients from birth to age 21 allowing you to interact with a variety of ages.

We would love to hear from you if you are: energetic, compassionate, patient, comfortable around children of different ages, a positive thinker, able to be respectful of families during a difficult time

Minimum Commitment: One shift per week for at least six months.

Times: Seven days a week: 10:00 a.m.to 12:00 p.m., 12:00 to 2:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
