Types of Volunteers

Adult Volunteers must be 18 years or older and commit to 100 hours of service per year. Volunteers must commit to a regular schedule of at least three hours per shift once a week. Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital will invest in covering the cost of health assessments and background screenings for all full time adult volunteers willing to make a sustained commitment to the program.

College Student Volunteers are not required to commit to a year of service but must complete at least 50 hours of volunteer work within a three-month (semester) tenure. College students must cover the cost of immunizations and screenings unless they are interested in becoming a full time Adult Volunteer.

Teenage Volunteers can participate in a wonderful volunteer experience at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center during the summer months through the Summer Ambassador Program for students aged 15-17 years old. The program is geared toward high school students who are interested in learning more about healthcare. Ambassadors accepted to the program will be able to visit and volunteer in areas of the hospital in a structured environment. Enrollment for Summer 2017 will begin March 1, 2017. The application deadline is April 30, 2017.  Please note, this program is not for the Children's Hospital, but ambassadors will be placed all around the  hospital. Click here to apply.

The Volunteer Department at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital has opportunities for Corporations and Special Visitors who would like to visit on a one-time basis as well as limited Part-Time Volunteer positions for volunteers unable to commit to a year of service.  Please contact us at volunteers@ololchildrens.org for more information.
