Application Process/Requirements

Before you apply to become a volunteer, please familiarize yourself with the application process.

Volunteers are required:

  • To be at least 18 years of age. For ages 14-17, please visit our Junior Volunteer Program.
  • To pass a criminal background check conducted free of charge through Volunteer Services
  • To commit to at least three months of service. Some volunteer positions require additional time commitments and training. Currently, the majority of our placements are virtual. Your volunteer coordinator will have more information on these assignments.

At this time, virtual assignments do not require medical documentation. Upon a return to service in person at one of our facilities, volunteers are required to provide a copy of your current vaccination records including documentation for the following: 

  • Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) for volunteers born after 1957 – two doses or laboratory evidence of immunity are required.
  • Varicella (chicken pox) – two doses, laboratory evidence of immunity, or medical diagnosis of history of varicella disease are required.

  • Tuberculosis test – negative skin test or negative chest x-ray is required. TB skin tests are provided free of charge through Harris Health Occupational Health Services.
