Volunteer opportunities at Sharp Mary Birch
We are currently accepting applications for adults. Our fall 2023 high school application season has closed because of the high number of applications received. We will open high school applications in the spring of 2024. We encourage you to review the frequently asked questions page for requirements for all applicants. We do not offer summer-only opportunities for any volunteer position. We do not offer internship or shadowing opportunities within our volunteer program.
Choose the opportunity that speaks to you
Our wide range of volunteer opportunities at Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns allows you to choose how you can make the greatest impact. We are happy to accommodate your passions and ideas to find the right fit for you. Here are a few possibilities:
Maternal infant services
NICU Volunteer Baby Cuddler Program — Baby cuddlers must have had at least six months volunteer experience with us, and at least 100 volunteer hours. Because this program is in high demand, there are usually very few available positions. Prior to volunteering in this program, you must clear a background check and participate in a cuddler-specific training.
Perinatal Special Care Unit
As a Sharp volunteer, you will give back to the community and meet new people. Other benefits include learning and career exploration, education and wellness forums, recognition prizes, discounted uniforms and a $6 cafeteria meal credit during each shift.
We make it easy and flexible to schedule your volunteer hours. All of our clinical departments utilize a live, cloud-based scheduling program that’s accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
