Volunteer Hours

Our program requires a completion of a minimum of 100 hours of documented formal volunteer experience with children for admission to the program. Although it is preferred that at least a portion of these hours are in a child life setting, hours can also be obtained in camp settings that serve children with various medical conditions or programs that provide bereavement support. Traditional day and overnight camps and child development centers can also be a setting for volunteer hours. Applicants do not need to complete all 100 hours with the same organization and can combine experiences from multiple organizations to meet the minimum 100 hours of volunteer experience. Volunteer hours beyond the 100 hours minimum are welcomed.
