Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
We invite teens to participate in a rewarding and worthwhile volunteer experience from June through August every year. As our Hospital Volunteer Program requires volunteers to be ages 18 and over, this is a special opportunity to engage teens who are interested in gaining experience being in a pediatric health care environment.
Teens that are accepted into the program are placed in a variety of areas throughout the hospital ranging from direct interaction with patients and families in playrooms, to supporting waiting room areas, to assisting with escorting patients within the inpatient setting. Teen volunteers are supervised by Children’s staff members.
The Teen Volunteer Program is very popular and often there are more applicants than available openings. Please keep in mind, due to a large number of applications and many teens that return to the program from previous years, there are usually limited openings each year. We encourage teen applicants to submit their applications early and be thoughtful in the completion of all application materials.

The application period for Summer Teen Program has closed. We will not be accepting any new applications for the summer program at this time.
All applicants will be contacted no later than April 30 of their status.
All previous Teen Volunteers will be contacted early in the calendar year, inviting them back to the program as long as they met the minimum requirements the previous summer.
Each will be asked to complete a Returning Teen Volunteer Form. If you have not received your form to complete and return, please contact the Volunteer Services Department at 412-692-5185 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to have one emailed to you.
In addition to completing this paperwork, all returning volunteers are also required to have an Annual TB test completed no later than one year after the previous year's TB test, turn in updated requirements such as Tdap documentation and complete the Annual Retraining Requirement.
