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.

Volunteer at a Norton Children’s Hospital Foundation fundraising event

The Norton Children’s Hospital Foundation hosts several annual events that require the help of volunteers. Check out our annual fundraising events to see how you can support Norton Children’s. Whether it’s helping at a splash zone at our annual Norton Children’s Hospital Splash ‘n’ Dash Walk/Run, or running a craft during the Festival of Trees & Lights, there is an opportunity for everyone to give the gift of their time and talent.

If you are interested in volunteering at an event to help raise funds to support Norton Children’s Hospital, fill out our online volunteer application to get started. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our events are limited at this time. After you complete the application, we will share opportunities with you as they become available.
