Adult Volunteers

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 Adult 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 adult volunteers are a vital resource, bringing valuable talent and perspective, and a shared sense of commitment that benefits our patients. As an adult volunteer, you will have the opportunity to enrich the lives of our patients and families. Adult volunteers acquire new and different skill sets and bring a vast wealth of knowledge and life experience. Some adult 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.
