It is our goal to match your skills, interests and availability with the needs of the hospital. Please be aware that not all the volunteer positions listed may have current openings at the time of application.

  • Eucharistic Ministries
  • Administrative / Office

To pursue a volunteer position, you will need to complete the following steps. Please be aware the entire onboarding process can take 3-4 weeks.

  • Most positions require a commitment of 100 hours of service. This usually takes 6-7 months, volunteering once a week for a four-hour shift. Exceptions to this requirement are PAAA/T, PAWS, NODA, and the Patient Advisory Council; each of these programs have their own unique set of requirements.
  • Must be at least 16 years old (excludes some services which require volunteers to be at least 18 years old).

  • Submit two reference forms: These can be filled out by a teacher, employer, co-worker, civic group member, or neighbor. The reference forms can be emailed, mailed, or delivered to the Volunteer Services office.
  • Background check: If you are being considered for a position, we will run federal and state background checks.
  • Attend an appointment with Caregiver Health: If your volunteer position requires specific immunizations and a TB test, you will be instructed on how to set up an appointment with our Caregiver Health department.
  • Attend a 2-hour New Volunteer Orientation: During orientation, you will be introduced to Providence’s mission and core values, receive a tour, learn how to track your volunteer hours, and get a picture taken for your identification badge.
