CHOC Volunteer Information Sessions

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at CHOC. We appreciate your desire to serve our patients and families.

We do not have an online application for volunteers. Rather, we ask that volunteers attend a virtual 90-minute information session to learn more about our programs. Information sessions allow our staff the opportunity to meet you and get to know you better.

Please read the CHOC volunteer program requirements before reserving a spot at one of the following information sessions. Learn more about CHOC volunteer requirements.
