The steps to becoming a CMH volunteer

Complete a volunteer application and then schedule a personal interview by calling 503-338-7573. Interviews are scheduled Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. An interview lasts about 20 minutes.

During the interview, we will talk about your interest, time availability and the volunteer needs of the hospital. We will work to find a good match for both of us.

If you are accepted as a volunteer, we will require you to to provide us with references and attend a yearly training session.

Training sessions last about 90 minutes. During the training session, you will learn more about our organization and what you can expect as a volunteer. All volunteers are required to get a tuberculosis skin test, drug screen and background check, which are provided free.

Once you have completed all of the above steps, you will be able to begin volunteering. The average volunteer works four hours, one day and we ask for a minimum three-month commitment. You will have two training sessions with volunteers before you are assigned an area.

CMH has various opportunities matching your skills. Visit us to learn more about CMH, meet new people and get involved in the community you love. We hope to see you soon.
