MARCH 22, 2019: Due to an overwhelming response from youth, we are currently NOT accepting youth applications. Please check back in a few weeks.

Thank you for expressing interest in our Volunteer Program.

Due to a large volume of applications, it can sometimes take several weeks for your application to be reviewed, we appreciate your patience.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old for most areas, with the exception of retail & food services, where volunteers need to be a minimum age of 14.

What to expect when you apply to become a Volunteer at HSC

  1. Applying

    • HSC receives a large number of applications. Only selected applicants will be contacted; it often takes up to 6 weeks before we contact selected applicants. If you have listed an email address, this is how we will try to reach you.

    • Applying to volunteer is much like applying for a job. We take many factors into consideration before accepting volunteers at Health Science Centre (HSC). We take our responsibility for patients seriously, we screen all applicants thoroughly. Completing our application as thoroughly as possible will help us assess your suitability for volunteering.

    • Be sure to include your specific availability, including days and times you can volunteer. We ask for a minimum commitment of 60 hours.

  2. The Interview

    • If selected, a Volunteer Services staff will call or email you to arrange a date and time for an interview.

    • You will be asked to provide three (3) references. We do not accept family members or personal friends as references.

    • If you are under 18 years of age, you will be asked to bring a signed Parental/Guardian consent form with you to the interview.

  3. Screening

    • After your interview, an administrator will contact your references.

    • If volunteering in patient care areas, Volunteer Services will complete an Adult Abuse Registry Check and/or Child Abuse Registry Check.

  4. The Offer

    • If a successful match is made between your skills and abilities and an available position, an administrator will offer you a volunteer position. If you decide to accept the offer, the administrator will discuss a start date with you.

    • Successful applicants may be placed on a waitlist until something opens up that matches their availability.

    • Those offered a position in Children’s Hospital will be asked to complete a Criminal Record Check.

  5. Training & Orientation

    • On your first day, your immediate placement supervisor will provide you with a volunteer identification badge, a general orientation to the office/site where you will be volunteering. You will then receive specific training for your volunteer position.
