As a result of the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the community, we will be temporarily suspending volunteer applications.  Please stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you once the COVID-19 threat passes. If you’re looking for ways to support Akron Children’s, click the How You Can Help tab in our special COVID-19 section.

Volunteers are a vital part of Akron Children’s Hospital. They help patients and families in many ways, including reading, entertaining baking cookies bedside and providing creative distractions for patients. In addition, they support departments by running errands. We also have 4-legged volunteers through the Doggie Brigade™.

Volunteer Services opportunities:

  • Adults (Akron and Beeghly campus)
  • Teens (ages 16-18, Akron campus only)
  • Doggie Brigade volunteers (Akron and Beeghly campus)

Volunteer placement is based on current position openings. NICU Cuddler positions are currently full, but many other opportunities are available.

Once accepted, you will be required to attend a volunteer orientation. Our volunteers receive hands-on training for their assignment.
