Hello and thank you for your interest in the Ascension Seton Student 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 (Dell Children's Volunteers are required to serve 6 hours a 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 2 semester commitment.

Additionally, volunteers are only permitted to miss 3 shifts per semester. If you are not able to commit to this level of attendance, please do not apply. 

The Fall 2021 Semester will be August 22 through December 11, 2021.
