Thank you for your interest in Cook Children s employee volunteer program. From the very beginning, volunteers have played a vital role in providing comfort and care during a time of need.Employee volunteers must be a current Cook Children's employee in good standing, able to successfully complete a background check, and willing to serve a minimum of 20 hours per year. In order to volunteer one-on-one with patients and siblings, you will be required to attend Volunteer Patient Care Orientation to prepare you. This orientation is offered monthly, evenings or weekends. You will also need to complete Family & Friends CPR training, if you are not already CPR certified.Note that employee volunteers cannot serve in a placement doing tasks that are part of their normal job descriptions or in the department where they normally work. They must volunteer during non-paid hours like lunchtime, before or after work, or on a day off.If you have any questions about the forms or requirements, please call the volunteer office at 682-885-4598.Thank you!Jen Robbins, CVAVolunteer Program CoordinatorEmployee Volunteer Program
