Volunteer application process

  1. Select a program and apply: 
  2. Check your email: You'll receive an invitation to interview with the campus supervisor at your desired service location. It may take two business days for you to receive an email. If you don’t receive an email, please call the Volunteer Services Department at 480-587-5097 or send an email. You can also call the campus of your preferred service for assistance.
  3. Arrange and complete an interview with the Volunteer Services Department to discuss possible service areas, your availability and interests.
  4. Complete the required checklist items:
    • Obtain a health screening through HonorHealth’s Employee Health office (no cost to you). The COVID-19 vaccine is optional, but HonorHealth continues to advocate strongly for all team members, clinicians and volunteers to keep their COVID-19 vaccinations up to date. The seasonal flu shot vaccine is required during flu season (medical or religious exceptions are available).
    • Read and agree to the HonorHealth Volunteer handbook, volunteer policies and procedures.
    • Attend a new volunteer orientation.

Volunteer Services will complete a criminal background check (no cost to you) once all checklist items are completed. Upon passing the background check, you will be contacted to schedule your service placement and arrange a time to receive your volunteer ID badge, uniform and training dates. Successful completion of your service area training may take up to 12 hours or three shifts.
