volunteers are at the heart of what we do

At this time, due to precautions surrounding COVID-19, our volunteer program is currently suspended out of an abundance of caution for our patients and staff. For more information on Dayton Children's response to the coronavirus please visit

Each year more than 500 individuals volunteer a portion of their time at Dayton Children's. Our volunteers are very special people who play an important role in helping us go above and beyond for kids!

The volunteer services mission is to help improve the quality of services of Dayton Children’s by assisting our staff, comforting patients and supporting their families.
