All Sharp volunteer programs are suspended at this time. We are not currently accepting volunteer applications. Thank you for your understanding.
It feels good to give back.
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.
