Application Process

In order to be considered for a placement, we ask that you read carefully through the three Volunteer Requirements listed below. If you are at least 16 years of age and can commit to one 3-hour shift per week for a minimum of 3 months, you must:

  1. Complete the Online BMC Volunteer Application
  2. Submit 2 letters of reference preferably emailed to volunteer.services@bmc.org. Reference letters must be emailed from the reference or be in a pdf document (we do not accept word documents from the volunteer applicant). References can be from anyone other than a relative and the letter must speak to the volunteer’s character, interest, and strengths that would make him/her a suitable volunteer at BMC

Please allow a minimum of two weeks from the time both references are received to be contacted by Volunteer Services.

We receive more applications than the available volunteer position openings, therefore, we cannot guarantee that all volunteer applicants will be placed into a volunteer position.

If you are placed in a volunteer position, you are required to submit your immunization records. Once we receive your immunizations and you have a confirmed volunteer placement we will reach out to you to schedule a 90 minute volunteer orientation.
