Volunteering at The Children's Inn

The Children's Inn has a dynamic volunteer program with more than 200 volunteers. There are many ways to share your time and talents with The Inn and its families. 

Inn volunteers are involved in almost every operational aspect of The Children's Inn. Our managers, professional staff and veteran volunteers provide your training. Volunteers must be at least 18 years-old for the long-term positions listed below. 

Volunteer Opportunities at The Inn: 

Welcome Desk: Volunteers are our registration and concierge desk all in one. They answer phones, take reservations, check families in and out of their rooms, orient new families to The Inn and answer questions about everything from airport transportation to visits to the zoo.

Clerical/Administrative: These behind-the-scene activities make daily operations run smoothly.; Volunteers support The Inn staff through data processing, filing, typing, mailings or runs to the post office and the bank.

Skill-Based Volunteering: We are always looking for skill-based volunteers to help with development, PR, marketing, and much more!
