Volunteers at The Woman's Hospital of Texas give one of their most valuable assets - time. We offer several enriching volunteer opportunities as detailed below.
Child Life Volunteer Opportunities
Child Life Cuddle Care Program
The Child Life Cuddle Care Program places volunteers on our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to cuddle and hold infants who need additional attention. We currently do not have any open shifts. We will post when we are accepting applications.
Child Life Pediatric Unit Program
The Child Life Pediatric Unit Program provides playtime opportunities for patients and their siblings in our specially designed playroom. When a patient is unable to go to the playroom, the volunteers may take toys and activities to patient rooms and spend time entertaining our young patients in their room. Volunteers will help clean toys, clean the playroom, organize child life supplies, and other tasks as needed. Four hour shifts are available Monday - Friday.
Adult Volunteer Opportunities
Adult Care & Ancillary Support
Adult Care & Ancillary Support Volunteers provide tremendous value to our hospital staff through administrative office support, assisting our nursing unit secretaries with patient support, and assisting our guests navigate the facility by providing much needed information and guidance in our Surgical Services Family Waiting Rooms.

Junior Volunteer Program (Ages 15-18)
Junior Volunteer Program
For those falling between the ages of 15-18, the Junior Volunteer Program operates two months during the summer, beginning in June and ending in August. To be eligible for the Junior Volunteer Program, a student must be 15 years old and be in good standing with their school. We are proud to receive a great many applicants every year, but unfortunately, there is a limited number of positions available in the Junior Volunteer Program. Applications are available beginning March 1 and must be received by March 31 each year.
