Volunteering: The Time Of Your Life!

If you have time to spare and enjoy helping others, then volunteering is for you!

JFK Medical Center's Volunteer Program welcomes men and women of all ages. Volunteers can be retired, employed, students, local residents and individuals from surrounding communities. These uncommon people have one common purpose - they are dedicated to helping others. Volunteers need no special training to get involved. Filling out an application begins the process. Special talents and personal schedules are matched to the hospital's needs. Most volunteers donate one time slot of four hours per week; however, additional hours are always welcome. Junior volunteers within our catchment area, who are in at least the 10th grade, can volunteer three hours per week during the school year.

Volunteerism offers something for everyone who wants to make their spare time special. To become a volunteer, or for further information, please call JFK Medical Center's Volunteer Office today at (732) 321-7083.

Benefits of Volunteering

While volunteers offer their services free of charge, they do receive many benefits. They have the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. They have a chance to share their knowledge or learn new skills while developing new interests. Younger volunteers use the opportunity to do some career exploration, and soon realize the benefits of having a background in volunteer service when they apply for further education or employment. Research also indicates that people who volunteer live longer. Most of all, volunteers receive the satisfaction that comes from being needed and doing something worthwhile that helps others.

Services Volunteers Provide

Volunteers are a vital part of our healthcare team. Each year they donate thousands of hours to the Medical Center, providing services that will benefit our patients and help make their stay more comfortable.
