Volunteer your time and talents

Make a difference in the lives of our patients and visitors by volunteering at UW Health. Our volunteers are valued members of our health care team offering assistance each day to our patients, families and volunteers at various locations throughout our organization.

We ask that you agree to a six-month time commitment. College students are asked to time their volunteering with the start of a school quarter. UW Health volunteers are required to be at least 16 years old and all volunteers need to follow regulatory requirements including annual trainings and maintaining up to date vaccinations.
