Our 501(C)(3)'s Mission Statement
The Children's Hospital Volunteers is an organization committed to improving the lives of children in Oklahoma. This support is focused on the patients, families and visitors of the children and women's services at OU Medicine.

Volunteer Opportunities volunteers provide needed support to families. These first faces help anxious families to find their way, during highly stressful times.  Their gifts of comfort and direction are truly appreciated.

  • Patient Pals assist in providing play activities to meet the social and emotional needs of the hospitalized child.  Patient Pals visit children in their rooms and help to staff unit playrooms.
  • Toy Cart volunteers visit each new patient in the hospital and allow them to pick a toy or game to keep.  It's a nice, fun surprise for children, and eases the stress of the hospital environment.

Volunteer Requirements
Volunteers must be 18 years of age and willing to commit to volunteering three hours a week for one year.  A Junior Volunteer program is available for those 16-18 years of age.
Our greatest need for volunteers is Monday-Friday during workday hours.  At this time, there are no available weekend positions.

All applicants are required to have an individual interview. Once accepted, the volunteer will complete a health screening (including a drug test), the photo ID procedure, pass a background check and attend an orientation session to prepare them for their volunteer position. This process may take 4 to 6 weeks.  All requirements are provided by the hospital at no cost to the volunteer.  Volunteers are asked to make a one year commitment to volunteering.  Please, call (405) 271-4870 to schedule your individual Volunteer applicant information session.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
