Project Sunshine’s Kids for Kids volunteers are individuals under the age of 18 who are committed to bringing joy and connection to pediatric patients and their families.
Teens and children are natural entrepreneurs, collaborators, and activists. However, due to hospital requirements, volunteers must be 18 years or older to participate in our direct volunteer programming. We know this won’t stop young people from making a significant difference.
Kids for Kids volunteers can come together in the classroom, as part of an afterschool program, community organization, or religious group to assemble Activity Kits and fundraise for the organization. We also work with passionate individuals who partner with Project Sunshine to raise awareness and funds through a variety of creative volunteer opportunities. These activities not only spread sunshine, they also promote the development of key leadership skills such as communication, advocacy, empathy, and collaboration.
Below are a few different ways to get involved as a Kids for Kids volunteer. Whether you’re donating your birthday to a pediatric patient, fulfilling a community service requirement, or just looking to get involved in a service project, Project Sunshine will work with you and/or your group to find an activity that fits best.
