What is the minimum age to volunteer?

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to begin volunteering at UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital.

Volunteers who are minors are referred to as Junior Volunteers. Volunteering as a young person is a great way to learn more about how a hospital works and different careers in healthcare, all while helping patients and staff. The departments that have positions for Junior Volunteers are looking for availability during office hours. Office hours are from 8am to 4:30pm, Mondays through Fridays. 

Many high schools will give credit to students who are volunteering with us. Please check with your own school to learn about any programs they many have.
