volunteer at Montefiore

Montefiore Medical Center values the compassion and important contributions of our volunteers. Their dedicated support is a vital part of our commitment to exceptional care. More than 550 individuals from across the New York metropolitan area volunteer an average of twice a week. Many families and corporate volunteers donate their services to special projects and events.

Learning Opportunities for All Ages

People of all ages and walks of life are among the hundreds of volunteers that we welcome each year. Montefiore's state-of-the-art facilities create a dynamic learning environment for those who want to gain experience or share their time and knowledge with others.

Volunteers at Montefiore work in both patient and non-patient settings in more than 200 departments. Every effort is made to match each individual with an appropriate and satisfying assignment.

Our volunteers are appreciated and highly valued. Every April, we recognize the outstanding service of volunteers during National Volunteer Week.

  • Commitment: Volunteers must commit to a minimum of 100 hours of service. To ensure the volunteer time is productive, individuals should be able to work at least four hours per session.

Summer Volunteer Opportunities

Students ages 16+ are invited to apply and volunteer at Montefiore during their summer break. Volunteering during the summer gives students an opportunity to immerse themselves in a clinical setting while providing non-clinical support. There are many opportunities to volunteer in several departments across all three hospital campuses and health centers. The summer session runs between the months of June and September.

The registration and onboarding period takes place in the spring and applicants should expect the onboarding and clearance process to take approximately one month.
