Founded in 1901, CHLA is the first and largest pediatric hospital in Southern California. CHLA is also one of America's premier teaching hospitals through its affiliation since 1932 with the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. Each year, we provide more than 104,000 children with pediatric health care in a setting designed just for their needs.
Imagine trying to find your way through a large busy hospital with sick children at your side? Our volunteers provide the friendly face at the door telling our patients that perhaps this place isn’t scary after all. If you have a winning smile, good customer service skills, and the ability to put adults and children at ease, please consider volunteering as an escort for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
