College Volunteer Program

COVID-19 Notice

Health and safety are our top priorities at ChristianaCare. We will continue to provide the exceptional care our patients and families have come to expect from us every day. During this time, ChristianaCare’s volunteer recruitment process continues but has been adjusted to minimize in-person contact to protect our employees, volunteers, and patients. Thank you for your understanding.

The Volunteer Program at ChristianaCare offers a variety of ways for individuals to make a difference through community service as we strive to provide a valuable experience for everyone. Our volunteers are a vital resource, bringing valuable talent and perspective, and a shared sense of commitment that benefits our patients. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to enrich the lives of our patients and families. Volunteers acquire new and different skill sets and bring a vast wealth of knowledge and life experience. Some volunteers work directly with patients and families, while others prefer to work in a variety of interesting and challenging settings that do not involve direct patient care.

  • Eligibility: You must be currently enrolled in a post high school academic program to apply for the College Volunteer program.
  • Commitment: You must commit to at least (1) 4-hour shift per week and a minimum of 100 hours per school year.
  • Schedule: Assignment times vary depending on campus and opportunity. If you are not available at your designated time, you must notify your supervisor and schedule an agreed time to make up your hours.
  • Attendance: You must communicate with Volunteer Services for any need for an extended absence or if you will be ending your volunteer commitment.
  • Timekeeping: You will be required to log all your volunteer hours via the volunteer administrative database.
  • Annual Compliance: You must maintain compliance with annual health requirements, evaluations, and education, as well as other items as necessary.

The application is currently closed for the fall session. Please visit this website in January for spring opportunities.
