Owen Young, the volunteer of the year at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital, playing Connect 4 with a patient

Often considered the best first-step toward getting involved at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, volunteering on the hospital campus or one of our Outpatient Care Centers is a wonderful way to get a bird’s eye view of the miracles and amazing stories that are happening for our kids here every day. And no matter your interest or your expertise, there are many ways to help. Our kids and our staff can’t wait to meet you.
