Volunteer Categories (links for applications for each category are at the end of the document)
To apply please click on the volunteer category you are interested in.
There is not a strict minimum number of hours required. We do prefer adult volunteers commit for a consistent period of time and/or schedule. Most volunteer assignments are a weekly commitment of two or three hours. We do understand some volunteer shifts may be missed for major holidays, official college/university breaks and closings, and other circumstances.
It may take 2 to 3 weeks to complete the necessary health screening, orientation, and background check before you’re ready to go. Volunteer Services will help you through those steps once a placement has been confirmed.
We understand the health screening process does take time. For the safety of our patients, visitors, volunteers, and team members, we must follow the infection control policies of Sheltering Arms Institute, which are based on CDC guidelines.
We are not accepting court-ordered service at this time.
The minimum age to participate is 18 years old.
Yes, some units do need help in the evenings or weekends. Those opportunities are very popular, and Volunteer Services will talk with you about what is available.
We care about you. If you aren’t feeling well, please stay home to take care of yourself and help us protect our patients and team members. Please follow the instructions given by Volunteer Services and/or your assignment supervisor to remove yourself from the schedule or contact us as soon as possible.
Yes, as long as you remain in good standing, we would like to have you as a volunteer as long as possible. You will be required to complete annual education requirements once a year, and to have an annual flu vaccine. There may be additional annual, periodic, or one-time requirements depending on the volunteer program and/or volunteer assignment.
We want all of our volunteers to find their assignments meaningful and enjoyable. If you are not satisfied, please speak to Volunteer Services and we’ll work with you to fix the problem or try to help you find another area that has availability.
