About Volunteering

Volunteering at Sibley

When you use your time and talents in service to others, you make an impact that touches lives, including your own. As a volunteer at Sibley, you’ll meet new people, make lasting memories and learn to appreciate all that you have, and all that you have to offer.

Why volunteer at Sibley? The answers vary. Some volunteers have been patients or have had family members who were patients here. They deeply appreciate the level of care they received, so they want to give back as a way of showing their gratitude. Others simply enjoy taking care of people and making a difference. We also have volunteers who are interested in pursuing healthcare careers and want to learn more about our environment. If you are friendly, open and caring, you may be an ideal candidate for our volunteer team.

We have volunteers of all ages, beginning with junior volunteers (must be at least 15 years old) through senior-age adults. If possible, we ask our volunteers to commit to at least four hours of service per week.

You’ll enjoy working in our exceptional atmosphere with caring, supportive team members. You’ll also find that the warmth and gratitude of our patients and staff will enrich your life and fill you with a sense of pride for contributing to the health and wellbeing of others.
