College Student Volunteer Program

At the beginning of each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer) we welcome students from various colleges and universities.  Undergraduate, graduate, or non-traditional students can become involved in many ways at VCU Health.  To successfully apply to volunteer, you must begin working on the requirements before the semester begins. We expect a weekly commitment of at least two consecutive hours (excluding official university breaks and holidays) for the entire semester—this is approximately 20 hours of service. We encourage volunteers to participate for multiple semesters. Letters of reference will only be provided to volunteers who have served 40 hours or more (a record of hours can be provided at any time).

The deadline for applying to volunteer for Summer 2019 has passed.

If you are interested in applying to volunteer during the Fall 2019 semester, check this website in July for materials and instructions. Materials and instructions will be posted when they are ready. Please do not call or email the office to ask exactly which day they will be posted. 

Before considering applying, make sure you understand:

  • Health screening, registration, and orientation are all required to participate
  • You must have a Social Security Number in order to volunteer
  • You must have a valid, government-issued ID, such as Driver’s License or Passport

Additionally, we ask that you take a few minutes to review our self-assessment to ensure this program is right for you.


If you have questions, contact Volunteer Services at (804) 828-0922 or volunteer@vcuhealth.org.
