NCH College Student Volunteer Program

NCH provides college students with the opportunity to work with staff and patients through the NCH College Student Volunteer Program.  Through their service, students will gain valuable experience working in a hospital setting, develop contacts within the NCH facilities, and earn service hours required for graduation.

  • College Student Volunteers are those who are enrolled in a college, university or vo-tech program, full-time or part-time; minimum age of 18 years old.

  • College Student volunteers are required to complete a minimum of 100 volunteer hours and 6 consecutive months of service before the Volunteer Department will sign off on any forms or letters or recommendation.

  • Due to the extensive process to become a volunteer, NCH does not accept college student volunteers who are home for summer or winter breaks.

  • If you meet the requirements for the College Student Volunteer program, please complete the Adult Volunteer Application.
