Non-Degree Seeking Adult Volunteers

The well-being of our patients, families, volunteers, and staff is our utmost priority. In light of the continuation of guidelines designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community, summer volunteer programs are on hold until further notice. Thank you for understanding.

For people who are finished with their formal education. If you are or will be enrolled in college, technical school, or a post-graduate program during the next year, please apply as a Degree Seeking Volunteer.

Step one

Due to COVID-19 we are not accepting applications at this time. Please check back for updates

Complete a volunteer application.

Completing the application will give you access to the Volunteer Information Center (VIC), required for step two.

Step two

Call the Volunteer Services Office to sign up for a mandatory Information Session. (352) 265-0360.

  • No information sessions are currently scheduled. Please check back for updates.
  • Applicants who do not attend a mandatory Information Session are not eligible to volunteer that semester and will need to reapply for a future semester.

Step three

After attending the Information Session you will be invited to complete the rest of the Volunteer Requirements and schedule an appointment to be placed in a volunteer role.
