Volunteer - Hospital Program

Volunteer at Hennepin Healthcare

As a Level 1 Trauma Center and a safety net for the community, Hennepin Healthcare offers a broad range of experiences to fulfill your personal goals as a hospital volunteer. There are positions in many different departments with opportunities behind the scenes, working with the public, working with patients, supporting staff, and assisting families.

Volunteering at Hennepin Healthcare gives you the opportunity to work with our community of diverse volunteers, staff, visitors, and patients. As a volunteer you will help supplement and enhance hospital services and programs — you will make a difference.

Most volunteers schedule a 3-4 hour shift once per week for 3-6 months. A coordinator will work with you to find a position that fits your schedule and your interests from among our openings. Daytime, evening and weekend hours are available.

We have a commitment to ensure our patients, employees and volunteers stay healthy. This means, all volunteers must meet vaccination requirements, including COVID19.
