We ask that adult volunteers commit to at least 50 hours over a period of one year. Most volunteers work 3-4 hour shifts, 1-3 times per week.
Note: We do not accept:
- Court-ordered community service volunteer work.
- Volunteers for senior projects if the student is looking for a short-term volunteer opportunity.
- Short-term, "shadow" experiences through Volunteer Services.
Whether you would like to work directly with patients and families, or would rather serve in a “behind-the-scenes” role, we have a volunteer opportunity for you.
