We welcome adults, teens and groups in the Volunteer Program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Adult and group applications are accepted year-round, and we accept teen applications twice each year. Volunteer roles can vary as much as the individuals filling them. Each person brings their own unique gifts to the patients, families, and staff. In turn, giving of your time can bring satisfaction you hadn’t even thought prior.
The application and interview process are outlined as well as the requirements of becoming an adult volunteer.
