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!

Volunteen summer session

Due to the overwhelming number of applications we have received, we are unable to accept more applications for the 2019 summer program. Volunteer applications for the 2020 Summer Volunteer Program at Norton Children’s Hospital will be available in March 2020.

Are you are still interested in volunteering to support Norton Children’s Hospital this year?  Consider volunteering for an upcoming Children’s Hospital Foundation event to help raise funds to support Norton Children’s Hospital.
