Volunteering at Sequoia Hospital offers you opportunities to enrich your life by giving your time and talents in the service of others.
Volunteers work in a variety of areas in the hospital. They meet others with similar interests and know they serve an important purpose in our community. Their presence adds humankindness to caring for patients and their loved ones. The one thing all Sequoia Hospital volunteers have in common is generosity: They give of themselves.

Stanford is fortunate to have an outpouring of community interest in volunteering and this interest often exceeds our available positions. If you remain interested in volunteering, are at least 16 years of age, and are available weekdays after school, please check our website for updates.
Thank you for your interest!
The Summer 2017 program will run from June 12-August 7, 2017. We have a limited number of opportunities so cannot guarantee every applicant a spot. The Summer Volunteer Program is currently full.
Volunteering can be a fun activity and very rewarding, but it is also a serious commitment. Volunteering requires that you will be willing to learn, work hard and be responsible and open to new experiences.
Please consider carefully whether this time commitment will fit your schedule as the departments depend on their volunteers.
Our High School Volunteer roles include assignments in the Gift Shop; Information Desk areas; and Administrative areas. Students placed at the Information Desk areas escort visitors; provide directions; or run errands. Gift Shop volunteers assist customers; restock merchandise; etc. High School Volunteers are not allowed to shadow, observe, or conduct research.
Please contact the Volunteer Services Department at Stanford Children's Hospital.
