Adult Volunteer Program applications are currently suspended due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are hopeful to open applications up in the near future. At that time, those who are selected will be contacted for an interview.

Application are generally available two times per year:

  • Fall/Winter recruitment - late July
  • Winter/Spring recruitment - late November

As a volunteer at Jefferson, you have the opportunity to impact our patients’ lives. Beginning on your first day, you are considered part of the Jefferson family, and you are trusted with the responsibility to help make a difference.

At Jefferson, we provide you with a variety of ways you can share your skillset and expertise. From interacting directly with patients and assisting families to lending a hand in the office, we’ll work with you to identify the best position for you to excel.

You’ll work with our volunteer coordinators to select the setting where you feel you can most contribute. You can choose from the following options:

  • Clinical – work directly with patients and clinical staff to provide an optimal patient experience
  • Clerical – assist Jefferson staff in one of our many departments and help with general office work, customer service and much more
  • Service – deliver newspapers, sell candy, escort patients and family members among other critical responsibilities that help us make visitors to Jefferson feel at home

For questions about our volunteer programs or the requirements, please call 215-955-6222.
