Hello and thank you for your interest in the Ascension Texas Volunteer Program.

Volunteer Expectations

Volunteers serve inside the hospitals and in outpatient clinics throughout the area. They provide non-clinical support to our staff, freeing up our staff to spend more time with our patients. Volunteering is a great way to make new friends and make a difference all at once!

Volunteers commit to 4 hour shift each week. Shifts are available 7 days each week. Due to the time and effort we put into screening, onboarding, and training new volunteers, we require a minimum 1 year commitment.
