About

Key Responsibilities:

Welcome children to the Sibling Center and engage them in age-appropriate activities. Activities might include talking, listening, reading, art, games, and comforting/rocking. Volunteers may also assist by organizing materials, stocking supplies for activities, and cleaning up after activities.

Impact and Outcomes:

This is a hands-on opportunity that allows volunteers to engage with siblings of patients receiving care at the Children’s Pavilion at VCU. You help the sibling to be engaged with age-appropriate activities while allowing the parent focus solely on the patient.

Orientation to the Sibling Center and training for the role will be provided by Sibling Center team members.

Must have a caring attitude and the ability to work patiently with a variety of ages. Must be comfortable interacting with children ages 3-14 years (most participants will be 3-8 years old).
