What hours can I volunteer?
Most volunteers are here (or in one of our offsite clinics) once each week for a four-hour shift from either 8:00am - 12:00pm or from 12:00pm - 4:00pm weekdays. However, many departments also support evening and weekend shifts. We can usually find an opportunity that will fit into your schedule as long as you are able to commit to a regular time each week.
The departments that have positions for high school students as volunteers need teens with daytime/weekday availability. After hours and weekends may be available after a teen has demonstrated responsibility and reliability.
We ask all volunteers to complete a commitment of at least 100 hours. Occasionally we have opportunities for volunteer internships in a variety of departments and most of those ask for a 20 -30 hour volunteer commitment per week. Please remember that volunteers cannot provide service for more than 40 hours a week to support good work practices and ensure the best care for our patients.
