What commitment is required of volunteers?
Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one two- to four-hour shift per month for one year. Exceptions may be made for busy health care providers (i.e., doctors, dentists), who would volunteer for a minimum of one shift per quarter. Volunteer consistency is critical to run effective clinics. Please review the requirements to volunteer before applying.
How long will it take to process my application?
To match volunteers’ skills and interests with the clinic positions, potential volunteers must go through a screening process. Please allow up to two weeks for processing after submitting your application. At that point, you will receive a phone call to either arrange an interview with the program coordinator or to be placed on a wait list if your desired position isn’t immediately available.
Is there a dress code for volunteers?
The dress code is casual professional. Scrubs are acceptable and help to present a professional image, but you are welcome to dress comfortably (no frayed jeans or low cut/revealing clothing). Please restrict the use of strong perfumes or scents, as some patients have sensitivities to them. We ask that all volunteers wear closed-toe shoes for their safety.
Does the Free Clinic accommodate large groups of volunteers?
No, due to COVID and capacity, we cannot accommodate large groups of volunteers.
