Volunteer

Since 1990, nearly 12,000 families have walked through the doors of The Children’s Inn. With the help of 175 dedicated volunteers, we are able to help serve these children and families coming from around the world for groundbreaking research studies at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). From greeting our guests with a friendly hello at the welcome desk, to keeping the kitchens organized and well-stocked, to hosting a fun activity in the evenings, our volunteers are truly the heart of our organization.

Whether you are looking for a long-term volunteer position working a scheduled shift, or a short-term volunteer opportunity, we invite you to come join our world-class group of volunteers who help make The Children’s Inn at NIH “a place like home” for 1,500 families and children each year.
