In order to volunteer at Regions Hospital you must be at least 15 years old and must sign up at: https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?AP=991565722
Once you sign up you will need to make time for an interview. For the interview you will need to have a signed parent consent form, evidence of a screening for tuberculosis (available at the hospital), and your immunization history. During the interview, you will be asked many of the questions that were on the form you first submitted.
After the interview you will need to complete an orientation electronically and then have a medical screening which they offer at the hospital for free.
Your first shift will be a training with a team member from the department that you will be volunteering in. After that you must volunteer once a week, but you can definitely volunteer more!

The Bright Corner Gift Shop: You will be able to greet people, help at the register, and help stock and price things. (Shifts are available any day of the week)
