Non-medical volunteers

Non-medical volunteers help provide care and perform administrative functions. Our clinic evaluation programs are ongoing and non-medical volunteers are always needed to help us assess how well we are delivering on our health care objectives. We can also help students design internships through their volunteer experience.

 

Specific work might involve greeting patients, assisting with patient forms, calling patients to remind them about their appointments, and helping with medical translations (following some in-service training.) Are you proficient in Excel? We are always looking for data-savvy volunteers to help out with data projects! Keep in mind that most available positions do not offer shifts outside of clinic hours.

At this time, we have the greatest need for in-person volunteers and remote positions are not available!

You must be at least 18 years or older to volunteer!

  • Intake and front desk responsibilities*
