Please review the following volunteer requirements.
There are a few things you should consider before filling out your application:
The minimum age requirement to volunteer is 16 years old. Volunteers new to our hospital volunteer program are accepted into the volunteer program year round and must be able to volunteer for at least 6 months. We do not offer a summer only student volunteer program.
Be certain that you are ready to make the minimum commitment to be a volunteer. The preferred assignment is for one 2-4 hour shift each week. The length of the shift depends on the assignment area. Evaluate your current obligations at work, home and school. Patients and associates will be counting on you! It is important for volunteers to be dependable and to treat their assignments seriously.
The hospital volunteer program cannot accommodate volunteers who need to accumulate just a few hours of volunteer time toward a school or community-service requirement.
Volunteers at the hospital are limited to certain areas and responsibilities. Volunteers are expected to be flexible and accepting of different assignments according to the needs and requirements of the patients, associates and Volunteer Services department.
Bring your energy and enthusiasm. Volunteering offers the opportunity to learn and contribute in a professional, care-giving organization. Your smile and positive attitude will help you get the most out of your volunteer experience.
We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds. To ensure our patients’ well-being and help you have the best possible volunteer experience, Ascension requires that all volunteers complete the following forms:
