Volunteer Opportunities at Sharp Memorial Hospital
It feels good to give back.
We are currently accepting applications for adult volunteers. Because of the resurgence in COVID cases, we are postponing accepting applications from high school students. Please watch this page for updates.
Make a difference in the lives of others when you volunteer at Sharp. We offer many ways for you to contribute your time, energy and skills.
As a Sharp volunteer, you will give back to the community and meet new people. Other benefits include learning and career exploration, health care-related college scholarship opportunities, recognition events and a $6 cafeteria meal credit during each shift.
We make it easy and flexible to schedule your volunteer hours. All of our clinical departments utilize a live, cloud-based scheduling program that's accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
