Teen Volunteer Application
Thank you for considering Penrose-St. Francis Health Services for your volunteer service. We look forward to working with you. Volunteering is rewarding and fun, but demands a significant service-based commitment on your part. At Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, our patients, visitors and staff benefit greatly when volunteers serve on a regular, long-term basis. Therefore, Penrose-St. Francis Health Services volunteers are asked to commit to a regular (usually, weekly) schedule of shifts which are typically four hours in length. In considering your desire to volunteer, it is very important to evaluate your schedule and the required time commitment to make sure you can fulfill all the requirements. We recognize that you have a choice of where you volunteer, thank you for choosing us!

At the volunteer orientation, we will review the requirements of volunteers and give you examples of area openings and volunteer program availability.
