Thank you for your interest in volunteer positions at Grand View Health.

Studies show that volunteering promotes physical and mental health, provides a sense of purpose, fosters social interactions and brings happiness. In fact, Aristotle is quoted as saying, “The essence of life is to serve others and do good.”

At Grand View Health, volunteers play an essential role in assisting our patients, families, volunteers and community members.

Adult volunteers must be 18 years old or older and are scheduled to volunteer at least three-to-four hours once a week, with a commitment of at least 50 hours of service over a six-month period.

The Junior Volunteer Program is on hold for 2022.

Junior volunteers must be 14 years or older as of January 1 and currently be attending high school. Junior volunteers are scheduled to volunteer at least three-to-four hours once a week, with a commitment of at least 20 hours of service between June – August.

The process to become an active volunteer is as follows:

    • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
