Volunteer Application Forms

Service opportunities are available year-round at California Hospital Medical Center. Volunteers are asked to commit to a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly schedule. Adult community members, college students, and vocational education students are welcome to apply throughout the year.

Interested candidates must attend a Volunteer Introductory Meeting, which takes place every first Saturday of the month. The next Volunteer Introductory Meeting will take place on Saturday, February 3, 2018, at 10:00 am in the hospital's Command Center. We will collect your application at that time, and answer any questions you may have.  You must check-in at the information desk in the hospital lobby to get directions to the meeting location. Please note that we will not be having a meeting in the months of  December 2017 and January 2018. Please check again in January for the next meeting date.

Adult applicants must provide a social security number in order to obtain a mandatory background screening. All candidates must complete a health screening. Screenings are provided free of charge by California Hospital Medical Center.
