College Student Volunteer Program

Traditionally, we welcome students from various colleges and universities at the beginning of each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer). 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).

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been changes to our volunteer programs. Further changes may occur at any time. We will do our best to keep this page updated. We appreciate your patience and your understanding.

The deadline for applying to volunteer during Spring Semester 2023 has passed.

If you are interested in applying to volunteer during the Summer, check this site in early April for materials and instructions. Application 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 continuing, ensure you understand:

  • Health screening, registration, criminal history checks 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
  • COVID vaccines are mandatory and proof will be required; proof of current Flu vaccination is required during certain months

If you applied before the deadline for Spring 2023 and were sent registration instructions, the list of possible assignments is being updated as we are able. A Volunteer Services team member will guide you during your registration appointment to choose an available opportunity.
