What to expect when you apply to become a Grace Hospital Volunteer
Step 1 – Applying
Applying to volunteer is much like applying for a job. We take many factors into consideration before accepting volunteers to assist at the Grace. Because we take our responsibility for patients/residents seriously, we screen all applicants thoroughly. Completing our application as thoroughly as possible will help us assess your suitability for volunteering in a health care environment.
If you are under 18 years of age, you must complete the Volunteer Application Form which requires Parental/Guardian Consent. This application form can be found online or by calling our office at 204-837-0369.
Step 2 – The Interview
When we are in need of more volunteers, a Volunteer Resources staff member will call you to arrange a date and time for an interview. The interview process takes 15-20 minutes.
Step 3 – Screening
After your interview, a Volunteer Resources staff member will contact your references.
All volunteer applicants over the age of 18 will be asked for a Criminal Record Check, Adult Abuse Registry Check & Child Abuse Registry Check.
Step 4 – The Offer
If a successful match is made between your skills and abilities and an available position, Volunteer Resources staff will offer you a volunteer position. If you decide to accept the offer, a start date will be determined.
If you are a student getting credit hours for your volunteering, it is your responsibility to track your hours to ensure you are meeting your school’s hour requirements.
Step 5 – Training & Orientation
On your first day, your immediate placement supervisor will provide you with a volunteer identification badge, a general orientation to the office/site where you will be volunteering. You will then receive specific training for your volunteer position.
You are now ready to begin volunteering!
