Be part of a team of committed volunteers who are passionate about making a difference

At SickKids Foundation, our volunteer positions are meaningful and gratifying. Volunteers help us tackle a lot including assisting in a variety of special events, supporting us on administrative work and with short and longer term projects. Most of all though, our volunteers greatly contribute to making every kid a healthy kid.



Be a Patient Ambassador and share your fight

Join our league of over 300 patients and families whose lives involve SickKids and have chosen to become Patient Ambassadors. It’s a great way to move from defense to offense in the fight for healthier children. We are always looking for current patients to tell their stories through a variety of ways including print, web, TV and radio media as well as speaking at public and media events. All stories are appreciated and will be read. If we think that we'll be able to involve you in the ambassador program we'll be in touch and we'll let you know more about how it works. Your story will not be shared publicly without your consent.


Here's how to learn more about the Patient Ambassador Program:

  • Fill out our form to raise your hand. 
  • Your family will participate in a face-to-face or telephone meeting during which time we can learn more about your SickKids story.
  • A one-page summary of your SickKids story will be written and shared with you and the main staff member involved in your care to ensure accuracy.
  • You will always be asked in advance for consent to share the approved profile.
