Volunteer at Akron Children's Hospital

Featured Image

Volunteers are a significant part of Akron Children’s Hospital. They sit with patients while families are away, participate in recreational activities in the playrooms, bake cookies with patients at their bedsides, provide a creative distraction through craft kit projects, and more. We also have 4-legged volunteers through the Doggie Brigade™.

We have 3 types of volunteers:

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

To learn more about volunteering at Akron Children's, call 330-543-8424 (Akron campus) or 330-746-8350 (Beeghly campus).

Please note: We are not accepting applications for the Cuddler Program at this time. The program and wait list are both full.
