Volunteer at a Hospital

I interviewed, got my flu shot, and passed the TB test. I am officially a hospital volunteer — the front desk greeter, as a matter of fact.

Unlike my other volunteering commitments, there are a lot of policies for this one. No surprise, but I’ve worked in such loosey-goosey work environments for the past decade, I’m just not used to all of these rules. Side note: This is why I wanted to volunteer at a hospital. I have absolutely no knowledge of the healthcare industry, other than what I overhear during Greys Anatomy when Kris watches it.

I’m anticipating this will be a great learning experience. Plus, I’ll be wearing this adorable uni. A little bit Janelle Monae/a little bit Betty White.

  1. I’ve been wanting to volunteer but haven’t a clue on how things are done when it comes to applying or finding places to volunteer for. I hope your experience turns out to be a lovely one!

    1. Thank you. I did a lot of research and reached out to many organizations, but received very few replies. It’s taken me a few years to find a stable of organizations that offer volunteer opportunities on a regular basis. Many organizations’ volunteer coordinators are volunteers themselves, so you must be patient. If I were you, I’d check out http://www.idealist.org/. Good luck to you!
