Community Volunteer FAQ's
My department at work would like to do something for the hospital. Can we plan an event with Phoenix Children’s? Who do we talk to?
Groups can apply to host a special event in The Child Life Zone. Groups can also help the patients at Phoenix Children’s Hospital through our community events. Visit our Getting Started page to learn more.
Unfortunately, due to infection control and confidentiality guidelines only in-hospital volunteers may come into contact with the patients in the hospital. If you or any members of your group would like to become an In-Hospital Volunteer please visit the website to learn more.
Does everyone in our group have to be signed up as a Community Volunteer in the database?
Yes, everyone in your group needs to register themselves with our Community Volunteer database before volunteering. Often, a member of a group will act as the point person and register their team members on their behalf.
Can I be a Community volunteer and also be a volunteer in the hospital?
Yes! You can do both. You can register to receive information about upcoming community events. To begin the process to become a volunteer in the hospital or to become a Community volunteer, please visit our Getting Started page.
Is there an age minimum to be a Community volunteer?
Some events may have age restrictions. Usually it will be a fundraising event that includes alcohol, and volunteers that are minors would be excluded. If there is an age restriction it is usually included with the information about the event. If you have a question regarding age limits for a particular event please contact the Community Volunteer coordinator.
