Volunteers are a big part of the Boston Children's Hospital community, offering essential support for patients, families and staff. Each year, hundreds of volunteers contribute their time and talents here — and we are thankful.

If you're interested in volunteering for Boston Children's, please consider opportunities like these:

  • As a volunteer at the hospital, you can play with children during waiting times, help families navigate the halls and more. Please note that a one-year commitment is required. Visit Volunteer Services for further details.
  • Gather your friends, family members or alumni association to prepare a home-cooked meal at Yawkey Family Inn. This restored Victorian home, just a few short blocks from the hospital, serves as a home-away-from for families traveling great distances to receive care at Boston Children’s. Learn more about Yawkey Family Inn and how you can get involved.
  • Pitch in at one of our events, from the annual Eversource Walk for Boston Children's Hospital each June, the Mix 104.1 Cares for Kids Radiothon broadcast live from the hospital, and many more.
