Apply to Volunteer

Three Steps to Become a Volunteer

Prior to applying,  please be sure you have read and meet the requirements for our volunteers.


1. Submit Your Online Application

Our online system uses excellent security protocols to ensure all your information is protected. Applications take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

If you are a clinician, our applications are based on your licensing status.

  • WA State Health Care Professional
    If you are licensed, certified or registered with the WA State Dept. of Health.
  • Other Health Care Professional
    If you are a health professional with a national certification, trade school certification or licensed in another state.
  • Non-Clinical
    If you are applying to volunteer as a clerk, interpreter, front office, etc. (any capacity except health professional).
  • Student 
    If you are a student (high school, college, graduate school, intern, extern, etc.) The minimum age to volunteer is 18. Special projects may be available for volunteers under the age of 18; please call the volunteer office for more information at 360.313.1389.

Once you submit the application, you will receive an automated email response. Someone from our Volunteer Office will contact you to review your application.

If you have any questions about the application process, please call the volunteer office at 360.313.1389.


2. Interview

Once a position becomes available, we will contact you for an informal interview with a  program manager. At your interview you will have time to review the role description and tour the work environment.


3.  Orientation

New volunteers will meet with the Volunteer Office for a general orientation and learn to access the Vic Net online scheduling system.

At the meeting, you will be asked to provide photo identification and complete several forms. Please note: We will also need your permission to do a criminal background check.  Oregon residents will be asked to provide $10 to cover the cost of this background check before they volunteer for their first shift.

Once you are invited to join the team, we will schedule one or more “shadow shifts” so you can watch a volunteer doing the same work that you will do. We’ll also help you schedule your regular ongoing shifts.
