Volunteer With Us

Volunteers donated nearly 55,000 hours of their time to Riley Hospital for Children in just one year. Our dedicated volunteers contribute their time to provide our patients and families with comfort and assistance. Our volunteers are able to offer their time in a variety of roles, allowing them to gift their time in a manner they enjoy.

We rely on our volunteers, and offer various types of service opportunities throughout Riley. If you are over the age of 18, and not enrolled in school, you are eligible to become a core volunteer. Teens aged 14-19 are able to participate in our Teen Summer of Service program. Opportunities, applications and interviews will be held at IU Health Methodist Hospital.
