Volunteer Services

The diverse group of volunteers at UC Irvine Health includes professionals, retirees and other community members, as well as college and high school students. Each volunteer’s dedication to serving the needs of our patients, their families and our clinical staff strengthens UC Irvine Medical Center in our mission to provide the highest quality patient care.

Volunteering is an opportunity to give back to the community by using your current skills or gaining new ones in areas that interest you. Volunteer opportunities are assigned based on the needs of the medical center and the interests of each volunteer.

Adult volunteers are needed throughout the medical center, including the reception areas, the gift shop, cancer center and volunteer office.

Adults can apply to any of the programs listed below.

College student volunteers work in several areas throughout the medical center, including dispatch, transport, nursing units and the cancer center.

Programs college students can apply to are:

The Families and Students Together (FAST) program is for high school students who are at least 15 years old.

FAST is centered on parent volunteers working with students, so we encourage parents to volunteer with their high school student.

Preference in the selection process will be given to those high school students with a parent or adult who can also volunteer at the medical center. (Parents will work in a different department than their son or daughter, however the volunteer shift times will be the same).
