Volunteering at Providence Cancer Institute

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Providence Cancer Institute. We are grateful to our volunteers for dedicating their time to help ease the way of cancer patients and their families by providing support and a welcoming environment. In order to ensure the best experience possible, we ask that our volunteers make a commitment of four hours per week (100 hours) for at least six months. There are a few positions that are an exception to this requirement.

Please indicate in the additional information section if you are interested in working specifically in the Cancer Institute. After an application is received, we look at open positions, interests, qualifications and availability to see if we can find a match. If appropriate, we will arrange for an informal interview.
