Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering means being part of a group of energetic people who make a significant difference in the health and well-being of others.

For some, volunteering provides an opportunity to interact with people and make new friends. For others, it's a way to give back to the community. The greatest reward, however, is the sense of giving oneself to help others—and there are so many opportunities for volunteering at Main Line Health.

Our volunteers are students, parents, grandparents, working professionals and retirees from all walks of life. They come during the day, after school or on weekends—whenever their schedule allows.

You can volunteer in the following ways at any of our locations:

  • Nursing units and clinical departments
  • Pet therapy
  • NICU cuddlers
  • Administrative support

Each location has its own unique volunteering opportunities. To learn more about these opportunities, click on each hospital below.
