University of Missouri Children's Hospital serves patients from every county in Missouri. With over 30 pediatric subspecialties, a pediatric ICU, adolescent unit and child life therapy, as well as teams equipped and dedicated solely to transporting infants and children, MU Children's Hospital is mid-Missouri's largest and most comprehensive pediatric health care facility.  In addition to our care providers and administration personnel, we need the help of volunteers to keep our facility running smoothly and efficiently. 


Feel a Sense of Accomplishment

Helping others is one of the most rewarding experiences that volunteers will receive through assisting patients, family members, visitors, faculty and staff.

Meet New People

Volunteers come in contact with many people and form new friendships.

Contribute to the Community

Whether you donate a lot of time or a little, all volunteers make important contributions. It's a great way to give something back to the community.

Learn About Health Care Issues

Volunteers see how a hospital runs, and they learn about the concerns that affect patients.

Learn New Skills

The supportive environment allows volunteers to develop new skills as well as extend skills they already possess.
