Notice: A lottery for Interview Appointments will be held at the end of April, based on available placements. Attending an Information Session does not guarantee an interview appointment.
Interviews will be held the week of TBD.
Step 3 - Schedule and attend an Interview. Instructions for scheduling an interview will be provided at the Information Session. Bring ALL items listed on the Volunteer Interview Checklist to your interview. You will forfeit your appointment if your materials are incomplete. Your interview will last approximately 2 hours.*
Step 4 - Sign-up and attend a General Orientation session. Instructions for scheduling an Orientation will be provided at the Information Session. You may attend Orientation before or after your Interview date, but please choose the earliest possible date. The sooner you complete Orientation, the sooner you can start volunteering!

*NOTE: We live in a generous community where many want to volunteer at UMHS. Because of the limited number of volunteer placements available, every missed appointment means someone else is prevented from having the opportunity to interview. Therefore, we are not able to accept an application from, or schedule future interviews for, anyone who missed their original Volunteer Interview appointment without notifying Volunteer Services.
