Youth Advisory Council

Our Motto: We ARE the children here.  Who knows Children's better than patients? As members of Youth Advisory Council (YAC), we draw on our experiences to help Children's be the best place possible for kids.

Family Advisory Council

The Family Advisory Council is a diverse group of families whose children have received care (inpatient or outpatient) at one of Children’s facilities. They work collaboratively with staff to promote and enhance patient- and family-centered care and to improve the family and patient experiences. Learn more about our expectations of members of the Family Advisory Council.

Volunteer Requirements

As one of the nation’s top pediatric hospitals, it is important that each team member understand and respect the seriousness of our patients’ health. It is for this reason that we have specific requirements for people who apply to volunteer at our hospitals and clinics — including the submission of immunization records — to protect the patients and families that we serve.

Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Children’s Minnesota. Volunteers are an integral part of the Children's team, bringing a community of caring individuals to share in our mission of serving the most amazing people on earth.

Corporate Volunteers

Children’s Minnesota is grateful for the many corporate volunteers who give their time and share their talents with our patients and families. From individuals and small groups to large teams, Children’s is honored to work with each organization to identify activities that meet their goals and, most importantly, support the most amazing people on earth. As we get numerous requests from the community to volunteer and interact with patients and patient families, we have both on-site and off-site opportunities to engage with patients. Understanding that our patients care and treatment is our highest priority we have several ways corporate groups can choose to engage with Children's.
