Volunteer Clown

Hospital Clowns enter a hospital environment and use improvisation, magic and joy to transform the child’s world into a space of play and imagination. Within moments, clowns can bring a child from a sense of helplessness into empowerment. Each of our volunteer clowns must undergo 90 hours of training, workshops and supervised visits in order to clown at the bedside.

How you help Hearts & Noses Hospital Clown Troupe takes pride in the quality of our training, with its unique emphasis on empowering and engaging the child through improvised clowning.
About us Thousands of children will wake up in a hospital bed in Greater Boston this year. Some will be there for life-saving treatment, others for care of a chronic condition or disability. Many of these children will be in physical pain and almost all will be lonely and hoping to go home soon. They will all be scared. Hospital clowns work for the emotional benefit of patients. Laughter and play relieve stress and encourage healing.
