• Adult Volunteer Program

  • Adult Volunteer Program at Penrose-St. Francis in Colorado Springs The Adult Volunteer Program spans ages 18-95. Most adult volunteers commit to three to four hours once a week in a volunteer position of their choice. Volunteer opportunities are offered in patient care areas, hospitality departments, clerical, "Rehab Buddies" and Spiritual Care. Prospective volunteers attend a two-and-a-half-hour orientation session. Orientation sessions are offered monthly at both Penrose Hospital and St. Francis Medical Center.

    After completing the learning modules and online application the prospective volunteer will learn about the Penrose-St. Francis mission, core values, the customer service program, the volunteer opportunities offered at each site and the training requirements needed before their volunteer service can begin.

    Prospective volunteers will have the opportunity to review all position descriptions that appeal to them. On-the-job training will be provided when the volunteer receives his/her volunteer assignment.
