Next Orientation:

Upcoming orientation for those with an e-mail invitation:

When: Thursday, March 2, 2017, 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Where: Main Auditorium, UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest; 200 W. Arbor Drive, San Diego, 92103

All timely, submitted applications were reviewed and invitations to the March orientation were sent by e-mail on Friday, February 24. If you did not receive an e-mail, unfortunately we were not able to reserve a spot for you at this orientation. We wish we could accommodate everyone who is interested in volunteering, but are unable to do so, due to the large volume of applications received.

The date for our next orientation has not been set, but will probably take place in May. As soon as the date for that orientation is established and posted on the web site, we will give instructions on how to apply for a reservation.
