Volunteer opportunities

St. Francis volunteers are one of our most precious resources. Volunteers work in a variety of departments throughout our organization. For many people, volunteer service is a special source of personal satisfaction and growth.

Volunteers at CHI St. Francis Health are multi-talented and flexible and therefore are able to fill in on an "as needed" basis to support staff.

Volunteers include:

  • Women and men of all ages
  • People with disabilities
  • Someone with a desire to help others
  • People with a special skill or ability
  • People with a positive attitude, energy and time

Teen Program:

Our volunteer program for teens provides youth an opportunity to learn about healthcare careers and become responsible citizens by giving back to their community.
