"It has made me happier, knowing that I am doing as much as I can to help others." — Child Life volunteer
Junior volunteers help families with way-finding, support staff with clerical tasks, keep patients and siblings entertained through play and reading activities, provide much needed breaks for parents, assist with community events and much more. Opportunities to volunteer are available seven days a week, mornings, afternoons and evenings depending on the placement. Placements are at the Fort Worth medical center.
The 2020 summer program runs Monday, June 8 - Sunday, August 9. You must be able to commit to one 8-hour shift every week of the 9-week program for a minimum total of 64 hours. (4-hour shifts are available, upon request and availability, for a total of a 36 hour commitment.)
Junior volunteers come in the same day and time, once a week, all summer long. Please check your summer schedule to be absolutely sure you can commit to volunteering all summer. If you will be gone more than two weeks during the summer, please do not apply for this year.
New Junior Volunteer Applications for the 2020 summer program must be received between December 1, 2019 and February 1, 2020.
