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!

Volunteer summer session

Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2020 Summer Teen Volunteer Program at Norton Children’s Hospital. Details on next year’s summer program will be posted in March 2021.

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

Due to the overwhelming number of applications and limited space, not everyone who applies will be accepted. All applicants will be notified about their application status by the end of April. Those who are not able to participate in the program this year will receive information on ways to support Norton Children’s Hospital Foundation fundraising events, which are held throughout the year.
