Patient and family volunteer opportunities

At Children’s Minnesota, everything we do is for the kids. We’re always looking for input from our patients and  families. There are several ways for patients and families to get involved.

Families as Partners

If your child is currently a patient at a Children’s Minnesota clinic or hospital, or has previously been a patient, we encourage you to get involved in the Families as Partners program. Families as Partners pathways offer diverse opportunities for involvement, including sharing your story, educating staff, providing peer-support and advocating for pediatric policy issues.

Youth Advisory Council

The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is a dedicated group of patients, ages 10 to 18, offering practical ideas on how to help Children’s Minnesota focus even more closely on the special needs of children and teens. We voice our ideas and perspectives.
