Become A Volunteer At Dell Children’s Medical Center!

When you join the team of Ascension Seton Volunteers at Dell Children’s, you’re not just joining a group – you’re becoming part of our Dell Children’s and Ascension Seton family! Our volunteers are a diverse group of dedicated people with a heart to serve others. Teachers, grandparents, college students, former nurses and therapists, bankers, business owners, empty nesters, retirees and more – our volunteers come from different backgrounds, but they are united by their compassionate spirits and dedication to our mission of service. Each person carries a unique set of life skills and experiences that bring warmth and kindness to our families, patients, and visitors.

Contagious smiles, comforting presences, huge hearts – our volunteers make Dell Children’s feel like home. If you have a servant heart and desire to bring compassion to your community, the Ascension Seton volunteer program is the place for you!

Volunteer Expectations

Volunteers serve inside the hospitals and in outpatient clinics throughout the area. They provide non-clinical support to our staff, freeing up our staff to spend more time with our patients. Volunteering is a great way to make new friends and make a difference all at once!

Volunteers commit to a 3 or 4 hour shift each week. Shifts are available 7 days each week. Due to the time and effort we put into screening, onboarding, and training new volunteers, we require a minimum 6 month commitment. Our volunteer program includes college students, retired adults, and adults who are still active in the workforce.

If you are currently active in the workforce and your employer offers Volunteer Time Off or donations to the Non-Profit organization where you will be serving, please reach out to one of our Directors of Volunteers so that we can discuss opportunities. We are grateful for your employer’s commitment to serving their greater community!
