These pages are for and about Alberta Children's Hospital volunteers and for those who would like to become volunteers. Welcome!
The Alberta Children's Hospital is a major centre of excellence in Canada for the care and treatment of children from birth to age 18.
The Alberta Children’s Hospital currently has over 625 volunteers helping in
approximately 55 different program areas.
We have former patients, siblings of
former patients and moms and dads of
former patients volunteering here. We
have college students, university
students, and future students
volunteering here. We have grandpa and
grandma-types, trades-types, retirees,
professionals and athletes volunteering
here. You get the idea - we have people
with all types of backgrounds
volunteering with us, but they share a
few things in common. They are
interested in meaningful interactions
with patients and families, and by
donating their time, they want to help.
The volunteers are committed to the
values of the Alberta Health Services,
are energetic and enjoy being around
The Alberta Children’s Hospital
volunteers are a valued member of the
multi-disciplinary teams at the
hospital. The Alberta Children’s
Hospital volunteers extend and enhance
the quality of care and service to our
patients and their families.
All volunteers are asked to make a minimum commitment to the hospital of one
year, working a set shift, once-a-week. Most placements are daytime hours,
during the week and shifts are three to four hours long. Please note the Alberta
Children’s Hospital has no positions available for volunteers under the age of
18 at this time.
