Rhode Island Hospital accept volunteers who are 14 years old or older. New volunteers serve as volunteer ambassadors, greeting patients and visitors and assisting them in navigating the hospital.

High school volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of 50 hours of service. Volunteer services will sign forms or provide proof of volunteer hours performed upon completion of the volunteer hour requirement.

There are a limited number of placements for high school students looking to volunteer at the hospital. Students are required to register and attend a high school information session. Sessions are held in January (for winter/spring volunteering), April (for summer volunteering) and September (for fall/winter volunteering). Please plan on registering one to two months before a session. 

Please note that parents and teachers may not call or email on a student’s behalf.
