Junior volunteers

Whether you are interested in working with patients and families, or have a career interest in the medical or a related field, being a junior volunteer at Cook Children’s offers a very rewarding experience. If you will be between 15 – 18 years old by June 1, 2021, you should consider volunteering at Cook Children’s for the summer.

Junior volunteers help families with way-finding, support staff with clerical tasks, keep patients and siblings entertained through play and reading activities, provide parents with much needed breaks, assist with community events, and much more. Opportunities to volunteer are available June through August, seven days a week, mornings, afternoons, and evenings, depending on the placement. Placements are at the Fort Worth Medical Center.
