Volunteers must be able to commit to one 3-hour shift per week for a minimum of 4 months. Volunteers who are able to 6 months or longer will be given priority. We do not offer any full-time volunteer positions.
Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Volunteers under 18 years of age must have a parent or guardian fill out a Parental Consent Form. For those volunteers still in high-school, we have limited volunteer opportunities, especially during the school year. We encourage high-school students to volunteer during the summer months.
Volunteers must submit 2 letters of reference, preferably emailed to email@example.com. 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 should speak to the volunteer’s character, interest, and strengths that would make him/her a suitable volunteer at BMC.
Once accepted, Immunization Records must be sent to Volunteer Services either by mail, fax, or email.
Once accepted, volunteers may be required to complete a CORI criminal background check.

Medical Records and Volunteer Services Temporary Relocation
Due to construction, the offices of Medical Records and Volunteer Services have temporarily relocated within the Yawkey basement. To access their offices, go to their regular location and look to the left. There, you will see a set of double doors. Go through the double doors and follow the signs to the current location.
