Women & Infants' adult volunteer program is comprised of women and men who see the health care environment as a place where they can make a difference. Overall, our volunteers provide customer service either in an office setting or with patients and guests.
We are currently recruiting for volunteers to serve as Visitor Ambassadors, assisting patients and visitors at the main entrance of the hospital. Afternoon and evening shifts are available for volunteers with excellent interpersonal and communication skills. A successful volunteer must be able to work as an independent member of an interdisciplinary team.
Tour Guides for our Prenatal Tours are needed for evening availability, as well. These tours start at 7pm. Candidates for this position need to be available to greet and assemble participants then guide them through a hospital tour from the OB patient perspective. Here, too, excellent interpersonal and communication skills are essential.
Other positions are available and attendance at one of our Volunteer Interest Sessions will allow you to get more information and outline next steps in the interview process.There are limited summer opportunities available at this time.
Volunteer Interest Sessions
If you wish to learn more about Women & Infants volunteer opportunities and requirements, we invite you to attend an informational one-hour "Interest Session". Registration is required.
May Interest Sessions are filled. Please check back for June dates the last week in May.
Candidates who follow up as outlined at the Interest Sessions will be invited for an interview. If a volunteer placement is determined, the health screening and orientation process will be reviewed at that time. Remember, per our program requirements, we expect people to make at least a four-month minimum commitment to service once they start. In some cases a longer minimum time commitment is required. The overall process is designed specifically to protect our patients and our valuable health care resources.
If a regular, ongoing commitment is more than you can do right now, there are other resources available to help you find a suitable volunteer position. If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity prior to our fall/ winter timeframe, Volunteer Match, www.volunteermatch.org is a great resource for all kinds of information about volunteering and is helpful no matter what kind of organizational involvement you are considering.
