AVL: Volunteer & Intern Info Session

Tuesday, April 7 4:15-5 pm

Want to learn more about teaching opportunities at Mission Children’s Hospital?

Join us for a special Info Session on Tuesday, April 7, at the United Way Building, Conference Room #1!

You’ll learn more about Arts For Life’s educational visual art, music, and creative writing programs and the volunteer and internship experience. Information session attendees are invited to bring all questions to the April 7 event. More details about volunteer as well as internship opportunities, including an online volunteer application, can be found at

Teaching volunteers and interns must have skills in the arts, enjoy working with children, and be 18 years of age or older. Volunteers are expected to teach lessons weekly to patients and their siblings.

“I spend each Friday at the hospital, and that makes it the best day of my week,” says volunteer Lauren Ling. “It’s amazing to watch a young child fully immerse themselves in the process of making art, leaving behind the beeping IV poll and the fear and discomfort surrounding treatment. It’s a triumph for art to be the reason a patient wants ‘10 minutes longer’ before going home.”
