Volunteer at Norton Children’s

Norton Children’s Hospital has over a century-old history of caring for the children of Kentucky and Southern Indiana without regard to their families’ ability to pay. We are Kentucky’s only full-service, free-standing pediatric care facility dedicated to the care and advocacy of children. To better serve our patients, we count on our volunteer support. Once you apply for our volunteer program, you will be invited to learn more about the many different volunteer opportunities during monthly information sessions.

Complete an application indicating at which facility you would like to serve as a volunteer. Because of the number of applications we receive, not all teens who apply will be selected as volunteers.

Once you have submitted your application, you will be invited to attend one of our monthly information sessions, where you can learn about available volunteer opportunities. If you have any questions about this process, contact Brenda O’Bryan. We look forward to reviewing your application!

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no 2021 Summer Teen Volunteer Program.
