Volunteer News and Notes

We will update this section as new announcements are available. However, you are always encouraged to communicate with your coordinator or the staff in the area where you volunteer if you are not able to find the answer to the question you are looking for.

Clubhouse Volunteers – New Email

Attention Clubhouse volunteers—you can email the Clubhouse staff at Clubhousevol@NationwideChildrens.org if you have scheduling questions, if you are going to be off, or if you just want to chat!  Please add this email to your contact list.

Gel In... Gel Out

Hand hygiene is important for all. Make sure you are either using hand gel or soap and water every time you enter and exit a patient’s room.  If you have questions, please email Volunteering@NationwideChildrens.org

Dress Policy

Remember, teens need to wear khaki pants and the uniform polo when volunteering.  All volunteers need to be in closed-toe shoes and wearing their photo name badge. 

This means NO shorts, capri’s, sandals, or flip flops.  Skirts are permitted if they are knee length or longer.  Scrubs are permitted if they are khaki, navy, or black.

Returning Volunteers

If you are returning from a leave of absence, we will need to do a few things to get you volunteering again:

  • Complete your retraining if it has expired
  • Stop in to Family and Volunteer Services to get your card key activated and reprinted if you have returned it
  • Chat with us about your availability and interests so we can get you scheduled in an assignment.
