I have some time available and I wish to give back. 
I know that the children I might see in the hospital may be in pain. 
I am comfortable working with and around them even though they may be experiencing discomfort.  
I am interested in a career in a hospital.  Before I make my final decision, I wish to spend time making sure that the hospital environment is a good place for me.
I treat volunteer commitments with the same respect that I do work obligations,  committing to serve on a regular day and time. 
I enjoy working in new situations, taking on different duties, or helping in additional ways based on the needs of the people around me. 
I am comfortable making repeated trips to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles to complete volunteer interviews, medical checks, orientations, and training (this may total as many as seven trips to the hospital).

I hope to use volunteer service to work through the loss of a loved one. 
I am “in between jobs” and am hoping to use my free time to be of service.
