Get Involved – Overview

Quite possibly, the best place to volunteer

The secret behind Open Heart Magic’s success Is our tremendous community of volunteers. Whether they wear black Hospital Magician coats, strap on running shoes for our Charity team, or sport our famous, red heart-logo shirts, our volunteers go above and beyond to help Hospital Bedside Magic® programs reach thousands of sick kids and their families each year.

Great people doing great things — that’s what makes Open Heart Magic probably the best place to volunteer.

Volunteer: Become a Certified Hospital Magician

It takes a special person to work with a critically ill child. Our 12-week Magic University training prepares volunteers to excel in the hospital environment, helping them feel confident and at ease. During Magic U., we do more than teach volunteers professional magic skills. We teach them how to adapt to the unpredictable hospital environment.

All applicants are thoroughly vetted before being invited to attend Magic University. This process includes submission of a completed application, a phone screen, and an in-person interview.
