Volunteer Types

Adult volunteers must be at least 18 years old and Youth volunteers are 16 – 17 years old. Volunteers serve in nearly every department of the hospital, and provide a weekly commitment of 4 hours per week and an overall minimum commitment of nine months.

Currently we are not accepting volunteer applications for any PHS facility.

Rewards of Volunteering

People volunteer at Presbyterian for a variety of reasons. Many are retirees who want to do something stimulating and worthwhile. Others still work, but they like to volunteer a few hours in the evening or on weekends. Student volunteers use their volunteer experience to explore healthcare careers and complete school community service requirements.

Other benefits of volunteering with us include:

  • Free flu shots
  • Gift Shop discounts
  • Free membership at the Presbyterian Healthplex (minimum hours required)
  • Annual Appreciation & Awards Luncheon
  • How2 OnDemand learning platform (minimum hours required)
  • Employee Assistance Program (available to the volunteer only, minimum hours required)

2020 Volunteer Scholarship Application – Now Open! Due June 15th

The Presbyterian Volunteer Services Scholarship Committee was formed in 2012 to provide scholarships for Presbyterian Volunteers pursuing a healthcare related career. The committee is dedicated to supporting the professional growth of our volunteers through the award of monetary scholarships.

Applicants must be PHS (CDS) volunteers, be in good standing, and have completed 50 hours or more of service in the previous year and want to pursue further education in healthcare.
