Group Volunteers

We welcome Group Volunteers to our Pediatric Play Atrium!  Thank you for your interest in bringing your group to volunteer at UNC Health Care! We ask that you click on the link below to apply for your event and allow at least 2 weeks for your application to be processed:
You will receive confirmation by email after your activity time and activity are approved.  If you are interested in volunteering in the Pediatric Play Atrium, please view the calendar at the bottom of this page in order to see what dates and times are available.  Only 6 volunteers are able to be accomodated for each shift.  Available times are listed as "Peds Playroom."
Patient privacy and confidentiality are extremely important at UNC Health Care.  Each member of your group is required to (2) complete a confidentiality form and (3) a group activity volunteer contract. Paperwork may be completed and returned before your group volunteers, or it can be turned in at the time of your volunteer shift.
Pediatric Play Atrium volunteers need to meet at the Children's Hospital Information Desk 15 minutes prior to their scheduled volunteer time to pick up visitors' passes. A staff person will be paged and escort your group to the play area. If a member of your group is not present when a staff person escorts your group to the floor, that individual will not be permitted to go to the play area. Everyone must be escorted to and from the play area at the same time; therefore, we ask that the entire group remain throughout the planned activity.
A few rules per UNC Health Care policy:
  • Volunteers are not permitted to take photographs of any patient.
  • Volunteers are not permitted to bring any type of food to patients.
  • Volunteers must have graduated high school  be at least eighteen years of age .
  • Volunteers are not allowed to plan activities that are religious in nature.
If you have any questions, please contact our office. Once again, thank you for your interest in volunteering at UNC Health Care. We look forward to receiving your application!
