Volunteer Your Time
We are excited that you are interested in joining our team as a volunteer! At MHC Healthcare, our volunteers are one of our most valued resources. Volunteers who give their time, talents and skills bring comfort to our patients and their families and make a positive impact in the lives of others and the overall wellness of their community.
The common thread that links all of our volunteers is compassionate and dedicated service. There are many ways volunteers can become involved at MHC Healthcare, and we can work with you to match your interests with our needs. You can make a big difference in the lives of others by giving just a small amount of your time each week as a MHC Ambassador. Giving to others makes a difference in peoples' lives - yours and those you help.
Benefits to volunteering at MHC Healthcare:
- Networking with others is a benefit each time you volunteer
- Volunteering is a great way to meet people and make new friends
- Volunteering can provide valuable work experience for students applying for jobs or scholarships during college
MHC Healthcare offers various types of service opportunities. Anyone over the age of 18, who is not enrolled in school, is eligible to apply to become a core volunteer at one of our 14 locations in Tucson, Catalina, and Marana. We ask that core volunteers give a minimum commitment of at least 33 hours. Volunteer opportunities are also available for students, giving them first-hand experience to learn what the primary care clinic environment is about. Students 16 years or older are eligible and are asked to commit at least 33 hours in three hour increments.
We would like to have businesses that volunteer with us for our health fairs and special events. We will work with you to make it an appropriate and meaningful experience. There are many service project programs for more administratively inclined volunteers who may find the work more appropriate to their skill set. These are behind-the-scenes opportunities, but they are extremely important to the success of our clinics and the ability to reach out to patients in our communities.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at MHC Healthcare, we would love to hear from you. All interested candidates must complete an application and interview with a volunteer coordinator, as well as complete a health screening and attend a unique orientation program tailored specifically to volunteers.
