Please note, for safety reasons you must be at least 16 years old to volunteer onsite.

Other opportunities for volunteering on the Oak Street Campus include: BC Children's HospitalBC Women's Hospital & Health Center and the BC Children's Hospital Foundation.

The research community at BC Children's Hospital offers research education events through-out the year.  These events aim to inform on exciting research discoveries, and to encourage students to pursue careers in science and research.
