All Returning Volunteers

Returning volunteerIf you have been an active volunteer at UMHS within the past 2 years, you are considered a "Returning Volunteer" and you do not need to re-apply to continue volunteering. A "Grace Period" is available for you to schedule your placement and shift time with Volunteer Services.
