Adult Volunteer Applicant Requirements

Adult volunteers agree to a minimum commitment agreement as stated below. Volunteer hours will be verified and signed off only once the minimum commitment is fulfilled.

  • Volunteer once a week for a scheduled 3-hour shift
  • Two absences are allowed every three months

Application Procedure

Please email your completed application as one PDF document to volunteer.resources@nicklaushealth.org. Include your immunization records or titers for MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) and Varicella (Chicken Pox), if available.

Orientation & Training

An online orientation will be required, which will provide further details on the volunteer program, policies, and rules. Additional assignment-specific training may be required.

Interview

Applicants will be interviewed after completing the online volunteer orientation. The purpose of the interview is to introduce the applicant to the Volunteer Resources staff, and to discuss schedules, position availability, and applicant skills, experience, and interest. Acceptance into the program is decided at that time, as well as the volunteer assignment and schedule. Volunteer assignments and schedules are not guaranteed and are based on availability and the outcome of the interview.

A social security number is required to complete an online criminal background check at the interview. If you do not have a social security number, please contact Volunteer Resources at 786-624-4431.

Tuberculosis (TB) Test

Volunteers must receive a TB test within seven days following the interview and provide documentation. TB tests can be received at a Minute Clinic or with a physician.

Accepted applicants are required to purchase a uniform immediately following the interview, which includes an NCHS Volunteer polo shirt for $32.
