Application Process

To begin the application process:

What volunteering isn’t?

Volunteering is not an internship or a shadow program. It’s also not an opportunity to get clinical experience.

As a volunteer, you are not allowed to participate in direct patient care. Finally, we do not accept volunteers who are court ordered to perform community service.
