what volunteers do

Volunteers at Dayton Children's assist in more than 50 different departments in the hospital. Volunteer tasks can vary from helping with a child life craft time, greeting patient families or doing data entry. While we do our best to place volunteers with a position that they desire we cannot always guarantee their first choice. The volunteer services department works hard to match each volunteer to the most appropriate job based upon their skills and current needs and availability.

Some examples of volunteer activities include:

child life

Assist the child life specialists in the activity rooms, patient room or other areas.

greeter/information desk

Welcome and assist families and patients with directions, questions and facilitating other needs.

patient escort

Taking patients and families to a designated area for treatment.

various clerical opportunities

inpatient aide
