The approach of summer reflects a period of change for many; school, vacation and sometimes work schedules are in flux. It is the same with our volunteer programming. Within the program we are preparing for the involvement of our high school students (they have been recruited and are scheduled, already), the college students home for the summer and the other adult volunteers who are looking to participate in the hospital community.
The following reflects our upcoming programming for our adult volunteers. Except for the timeline adapted for college students, all requirements of the program remain.
College students: There are limited positions available during the summer months for college students who want hospital experience while supporting our patients, families, visitors and staff. The summer months are very busy so we expect students to carefully consider their a) availability to work consistently each week through the summer and b) their commitment to timely onboarding and the timelines below before submitting an application. Please review the related information before proceeding.
Timeline: Application deadline is by 5pm May 13, 2015.
- A group interview is scheduled for May 19th at 1pm. Registration required.
- Transport Training is scheduled for June 3rd 2-3:30pm (required for Unit Volunteers)
- Start date by June 15, 2015
- This volunteer opportunity is available weekly (shift, tbd) through August 21, 2015
Process: If you are interested in and available for the timeframe of the program, please submit a Volunteer Application. After reviewing your application, a member of Volunteer Services will contact you within 3-5 business days.
If your application indicates you may be a fit for our current openings, you will be invited to our May 19th group interview.
When you confirm your attendance at the interview, we will send you a packet to be completed in advance and the materials brought with you on May 19th.
Following the session, we will notify you about options for the summer, if applicable.Adult Volunteers:
During the summer we will be recruiting and onboarding volunteers to support the Inpatient and Ambulatory Surgical Units. The start date for volunteers will be in late August and early September. Recruitment for these positions will start July 1st. If you are interested in these or one of our Ambassador positions, more details about the process and related timelines will be posted by June 19th. View overall program requirements
regardless of position.
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.
