Special Events & Visitors
If you are interested in spending your time making a difference in the life of a child, there are two different kinds of volunteer opportunities available at The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio. One is for you and your group (organization, company, club, etc.) to facilitate a special event for patients and their families. This is typically a one-time volunteer opportunity as a team, but can potentially develop into a monthly commitment if your group is interested and the hospital staff deems your group a beneficial partner. The second type of volunteer opportunity is for an individual who is able to spend at least three hours a week engaged in various activities at the discretion of the Child Life team. For more information on each type of volunteer activity, please click the links below. Thank you for your consideration!

For the safety and privacy of our patients and families, visiting groups must always be pre-arranged through the Child Life Department. With patient health as our primary concern, we cannot always accommodate visitors.
Volunteers assist children in the playroom or at the bedside in a variety of activities such as arts and crafts, board games, video games, and infant play.
