Volunteer Orientation Information

Thank you for your interest in volunteering 

Your first step to volunteering for UC San Diego Health System is always to attend an orientation

Your first step to volunteering with our program is to submit an application for a reservation at our next orientation. Seating for attendance at the orientation is limited. All applications received during the specified time frame will be reviewed. Approximately 180 people will be selected and invited to attend the orientation.

Please do not submit an application unless you are able to start volunteering at this time, can commit to 100 hours of service, and are sure you can attend the scheduled orientation.
