How to Become a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Alberta Children's Hospital. At this time, the Alberta Children's Hospital needs volunteers during weekday, daytime hours only.

The Process

  • If you're interested in volunteering at ACH, here is what to do:
  • Fill out the online registration form.
  • You will receive a reply by e-mail from Alberta Children's Hospital Volunteer Resources.
  • You will be asked to supply two character references.
  • Your references will be checked as required.
  • A criminal records check will be conducted.
  • A communicable disease assessment may be required.
  • You will be placed in a program, depending upon the current needs of the hospital and your own preferences.
  • You will be asked for a commitment of one year coming in once a week for two to four hours. The length of your shift will depend on your assigned program.

You will then be welcomed to the team, oriented and supervised by the capable staff of the Alberta Children's Hospital.

If you are interested in volunteering to help fundraise for the hospital, please consider volunteering with the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation. Visit their website at www.childrenshospital.ab.ca
