Event Volunteers

Children’s relies on our volunteers to help us successfully host our annual Signature Events that raise more than $4 million to support our mission. With a variety of events — from 5K runs to galas — we offer volunteers several ways to get involved.

Corporate Volunteers

Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of 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. To learn more about corporate volunteer opportunities, contact Nicole at 952-992-5518 [email protected]

Pets Assisting with Healing

Want to brighten the days of Children's patients, along with your pet? Become a PAWH (Pets Assisting with Healing) volunteer. Pets in the PAWH program help patients with development & rehabilitation and brighten their stay in the hospital.

Summer volunteer positions

Children’s volunteer opportunities are year-round, therefore we do not have a specific summer program. Anyone interested in volunteering must submit an application, the required immunization records, and be able to commit to volunteering for a minimum of 3+ months (or a school semester), coming weekly for a 3-hour shift.
