Volunteer Info. Session Registration Updates

Update as of 1/9/24:

Registration for new volunteers is now full. Please check back on Wednesday, March 6th for updates. As a reminder, our program is a minimum six-month commitment and volunteers must be able to serve one 3–4-hour shift on the same day and time each week. We currently do not have opportunities for volunteers to serve evenings and weekends.



Program Overview

Volunteers are a special part of the UCSF Health team. Each individual contributes to the success of our Mission Statement, which is “Caring, Healing, Teaching, Discovering.”  Volunteers have many opportunities to serve under the supervision of professional staff and enhance the quality of patient care, learn new skills, and explore a career in the health field. 

The types of volunteer assignments we have involve socializing and interacting with adult and pediatric patients, families, and staff in our hospitals and outpatient clinic settings.
