Thank you for your interest in volunteering. However, the minimum age for volunteering is 16. Please consider applying again in the future.
(NOTE: Volunteers do not do direct, hands-on, patient care. Patient contact is generally limited to escorts, wheelchair transports and other non-medical assistance needs. Volunteers in patient care areas may also participate in support activities such as stocking supplies, straightening, light cleaning and the like.)
Volunteers average between 4-8 hours per week. Working together, we'll try and find a regular (weekly) day and time for your volunteer activities. Below, mark the days and times that you would be available for a weekly commitment.
If your availability will change soon, please make note of the effective date of the change in the additional information.
Please provide us with information for at least 2 references. We will email a simple reference form for them to complete on-line. References may be professional or personal.
Pursuant to the requirements of RCW 43.43.830.840, we must ask you to complete the following disclosure statement. This information will be kept confidential.
We may request your fingerprints to obtain from the Washington State Patrol criminal identification system a report of your record of criminal convictions for offenses against persons, civil adjudications of child abuse, and disciplinary board final decisions.

I understand that volunteers are asked to complete a minimum of 100 hours before requesting recommendations or receiving credit for hours volunteered.
