Volunteer Services

UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh’s Volunteer Services department provides support to the entire organization and hospital community. Volunteers serve in a variety of roles, all of which are instrumental in delivering quality care and services to the patients and families that Children’s serves.

There are numerous ways that volunteers contribute to Children’s Hospital. Our goal is to match volunteers with identified opportunities which serve our patients and families and provide volunteers with a meaningful experience.

Our primary programs include:

If you are interested in supporting our patients and families without becoming a fully credentialed, regular volunteer, please review our Service Projects or Group Volunteers. You can also lend a beneficial hand to our Child Life Department by making a toy donation or fulfilling items on our Wish List Registry.

We are committed to identifying and training dedicated, knowledgeable, compassionate volunteers who align with our organizational mission and values.

Our volunteers come to us with diverse backgrounds and skill sets, all with the common commitment to impacting the hospital experience for our patients and families. Each volunteer has unique talents, and together with the dedicated professionals who work at Children’s, create a hospital environment that cares and supports both the patient and the entire family.
