Becoming a Garnet Health Volunteer:
The minimum age to volunteer is 15 years of age for clerical and customer service assignments. You must be at least 16 years old to be permitted to volunteer on a nursing unit. If you are under 18 years of age, it is mandatory that your parent or legal guardian to attend the volunteer information session with you if you are accepted into the program.
We accept new volunteer applications 2-3 times per year for our Adult, High School and College Programs. Once your application is received, it is reviewed and assessed. If you qualify, we will invite you to an information session to learn more about our program and the onboarding process. The onboarding process includes: a background check, reference check, medical clearance and orientation. Once all of the onboarding tasks are completed and the volunteer has attended orientation, they will be cleared to begin volunteering in the medical center. On average, it usually takes about 4 weeks to complete the onboarding tasks necessary to volunteer.
