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 during these uncertain times.

The deadline for applying to volunteer during Fall Semester 2021 has passed.

If you are interested in applying to volunteer during the Spring 2022 semester, check this site in early December 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, 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
  • Flu and COVID vaccines are mandatory and proof will be required as part of Spring application materials

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