You are here
If your purpose for volunteering is education-related, we consider you to be a student volunteer. Whether you are completing requirements for entrance into an education program, completing service required within an educational program, or any of a myriad of education related purposes, please follow the student volunteer process.
Volunteering provides students with hands-on experience that can prove invaluable as a learning opportunity. Student volunteers provide assistance as a part of the healthcare team, make contacts, gain references, make new friends, and develop a great sense of purpose and appreciation of your own life through service to others. Students are able to gain observation while providing hands on assistance useful to their resumes. References are also provided upon request.
What guidelines are in place for student volunteers?
Volunteers must be 16 years old at the time of application. Our Junior Volunteers program is available for 14-16 year olds.
If you are required by your program of study to do an internship, please contact Mountain States Organizational Development for more information and further instructions.
How much time do volunteers donate?
Students are required to commit to and complete a minimum of 30 hours over the course of a semester or within a six-month time period in order to receive verification of their service hours upon request.
