Benefits of Volunteering
- Free parking: Volunteers may park free of charge in designated parking lots using a Providence-issued identification badge.
- Discount in cafeteria: Volunteer identification badges issued by Providence entitles volunteers to a free meal.
- Medical center events: Volunteers have the opportunity to attend various events during the year, including the Annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon, holiday parties, special healthcare fairs and events, as well as foundation events.
Volunteer requirements for Providence medical centers are easily met. People of all ages, backgrounds and abilities who want to help others can become volunteers. An initial interview matches each volunteer's interest, talent and schedule to the medical center's needs. All volunteers attend an orientation to introduce them to our Mission And core values, as well as become familiar with various departmental functions before beginning assignments.
The list of requirements includes:
- Volunteers must be at least 15 years old.
- A record of volunteer service is maintained so volunteers can be honored with appropriate awards at our annual volunteer recognition festivities.
- Volunteers must submit a signed application, contract and confidentiality statement.
- Volunteers must take a tuberculosis test, provided free of charge by the employee health department.
- All volunteers are required to work a minimum of four hours per week with a commitment of 100 hours.
- Volunteers must wear the Providence Tarzana ID badge and volunteer uniform when volunteering to make it easy for the staff, patients and their families to recognize them.
