Apply to Become a Johns Hopkins Volunteer

Please carefully read the following steps to become a volunteer at The Johns Hopkins Hopsital:

  1. Adults 18 years of age and older must submit an application and schedule a screening interview with the Department of Volunteer Services. To schedule your interview, please call 410-955-5924. A reference and criminal background check are required as part of the selection process.

    High school students at least 15 years of age can apply to our 2018 Summer Junior Volunteer Program beginning in January.

    All candidates who have been pre-selected by a department for a volunteer position can submit an application (high school students must also submit a Parental Consent Form) and skip to step #3.
  2. Contact Volunteer Services two days after you have completed your screening interview to confirm that your background and reference check have cleared.
  3. Meet with the department supervisor from your potential volunteer assignment site. (You will need to schedule this interview.) Your Supervisor should fill out a Placement Interview Form which must be returned to the Volunteer Office.
  4. Look for an email from Volunteer Services with instructions for getting your JHH identification badge. This will include instructions for the online training courses and your occupational health clearance. You can expect to receive this email within two to three business days after submitting your Application and Placement Form.

    Note: You will need to get proof of TB clearance from Occupational Health and turn documentation into the Department of Volunteer Services. Occupational Health is located at Church Home in room 421 (98 N. Broadway). The office hours are 7:30am to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday. You can contact Occupational Health at 410-955-6211 with questions regarding your TB test.
  5. Obtain a volunteer badge card from the Department of Volunteer Services and proceed to ID/Parking Office which is located in Harvey, room 108.

    Note: You must present a valid picture identification card before getting your JHH volunteer badge. The hours of operation for the id/parking office are 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday.
