We Value Our Volunteers

UM Health-West volunteers serve in many areas throughout the health system. Whatever your skills and interests are, there’s a place for you.

Volunteers are asked to donate one morning, afternoon or evening (or a combination) to an assigned department in order to meet a minimum of a 100-hour commitment per year. They receive a free meal on days they work a 4-hour shift. There are also some volunteer positions available to teens 16-17 years of age.
