Volunteers placed in patient care units supplement the professional services of our Child Life Staff who serve as advisors, teachers and sources of comfort, helping families and children talk about everything from X-rays and surgeries to concerns about the future. As volunteers, you will assist in the well-being of the hospitalized child through appropriate interactive play activities at the bedside, holding, nurturing patients and families, assisting with meals, and other tasks contributing to their comfort.
