Volunteers are placed three times during the year (Fall, Spring and Summer semesters) and must make a one semester commitment to the program. If a need arises, ​placement of volunteers may also take place at any time during the semester. We ask that all volunteers work a minimum of 10 hours a month. There is a minimum age of 16 to be a volunteer and you are required to carry personal health insurance. Colorado State University conducts background checks on all final candidates. Applications are kept only for the semester you are applying for and you need to reapply each semester if you are not placed.

What is It Like to Be a Volunteer?

Volunteer positions in the hospital vary widely. The need for volunteers changes each semester you have the potential to work in any section of our hospital. The majority of our positions require shifts during normal business hours, Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Hours and experience can vary greatly between each volunteer position.
