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. 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 during Spring Semester has passed.

If you are interested in applying to volunteer during Summer 2024, 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:

  • Most volunteer opportunities are in downtown Richmond during weekday, daytime hours
  • Health screening, registration, criminal history checks and orientation are all required to participate
  • You must have a Social Security Number in order to become a volunteer
  • You must have a valid, government-issued ID, such as Driver’s License or Passport
