College Age Volunteers

The college age volunteer program is CLOSED.

We hope you consider participating in Cone Health’s college age volunteer program*, a great way to get hands-on experience in a hospital setting. As a volunteer, you will have the personal satisfaction of helping others.

Our ideal volunteer candidate is someone who genuinely wants to serve others and make a difference in the daily lives of our patients, visitors and staff.
