Requirements for all MWPH Volunteers

Who is the Ideal Volunteer?

Volunteer opportunities are wonderful for people who love children, have compassion and patience and are willing to give of themselves. Volunteering is also an excellent choice for students entering the medical field. Whether you are a student, a retiree or someone who works full- or part-time, we can accommodate your scheduling needs. Aside from the deep satisfaction of helping children, you'll enjoy special perks, including a free meal in the cafeteria, free flu vaccinations, free parking and an annual volunteer dinner and gift.
