Hospital Volunteer Program

Our Hospital Volunteer Program is our core volunteer program at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

We have a variety of roles available seven days a week including:

  • Reading a book to or playing a game with kids.
  • Helping families find their way around the hospital.
  • Providing general or administrative support to the organization.

Our volunteers assure our patients and families are surrounded by a safe and knowledgeable team during their hospital experience.
