Adult Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the University of Colorado Hospital. Volunteers play an important and meaningful role in providing care to patients and their loved ones. We hope you find your experience here to be valuable and worthwhile. Our volunteer program offers a variety of opportunities for service in our hospital to men and women, ages 16 and up. Our needs vary according to specific department. View a list of current opportunities here. We try to match a volunteer with their interests to make sure it is a positive experience for both the volunteer and the hospital. Volunteer assignments can be arranged to fit your schedule, however, we do ask for at least a one year commitment.
