Volunteers are at the heart of our Rady Children’s family. And the difference you can make is profound. Your gift of time will help us provide the highest possible quality of service to our patients, families, staff and communities.

The wellbeing of our patients, families and staff is our utmost priority. In light of new guidelines designed to reduce the potential for unnecessary exposure of our communities to COVID-19, volunteer programs are on hold until further notice.

We invite you to be a part of our family of doctors, nurses, social workers, therapists, technicians and staff. In return, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your time is making a difference in the life of a child.

Opportunities for Volunteers

Rady Children's offers a variety of options for those interested in volunteering. Volunteers can provide valuable services at the Hospital, participate in a fundraising event, or join a community auxiliary unit. Learn more about these opportunities here.

Is volunteering right for me?

We've created a self-assessment tool to help you determine the best fit for your service.

If you have completed the self-assessment questionnaire and still have questions about volunteering at the Hospital, please call 858-966-7820.
