Volunteer Services Mission

The Volunteer Services Department at Texas Children's Hospital is committed to maintaining an active program of support, compassion and quality service for the community of children and families we serve, as well as the staff of Texas Children's Hospital, while providing meaningful and challenging opportunities for those who volunteer.

When joining the Volunteer Services team at Texas Children's, you will become a part of a diverse group of an amazing team of volunteers who support patients, families and Hospital staff through a number of assignments throughout the Texas Children's system. Although we do not offer opportunities for clinical exposure or shadowing medical staff, we do offer a number of exciting and rewarding volunteer assignments at each of our 3 locations: Texas Children's Hospital & Pavilion for Women (Medical Center), Texas Children's Hospital West Campus (Katy) and Texas Children's Hospital The Woodlands (The Woodlands).

Volunteer Commitment

Our volunteer program requires a commitment of 2-3 hours a week for a minimum of 6 months. Volunteer assignments are available Monday – Friday between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Evening and weekend assignments are not available at this time
