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.
Visitor Ambassadors are our current recruitment priority. Volunteers in this role assist patients, families and visitors at the hospital. Visitor Ambassadors may be based at the following areas depending on interests, skills and availability.
Main Lobby, The Remondi Resource Center and The Oncology Clinic
Early morning (7 -9:30am), late afternoon (3:00-6:00pm) and some mid day 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.
Childcare positions are also available in a few outpatient programs. Volunteers assist the staff responsible for oversight of infants and toddlers while their moms are working with providers. Morning and early afternoon availability is required.
Some clerical/ administrative opportunities are also available in support of our clinical programs. Attendance at one of our Volunteer Interest Sessions will allow you to get more program information and outline next steps in the application process.
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.
April Interest Sessions are currently filled to capacity. You wll be able to register here when May's dates are posted at the end of the month.
When you register, we will send you a confirmation with details including directions and parking information to your email address. Check your spam if you do not receive the confirmation within an hour of a successful registration. Your telephone number will be used only if there are unexpected changes related to the session. To complete your registration, submit an application prior to the Interest Session.
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. 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.
