 Volunteering at Children's

It takes only a small amount of time to make a big difference in a child’s life – the time it takes to read a story, play a game, greet a family, or color with a child. As a Children’s National Medical Center volunteer, you learn skills and meet friends while experiencing the special satisfaction that comes from seeing a child return your smile.
