Volunteer Services strives to match your interests, skills, abilities, and talents with the current needs of the hospital.  To ensure proper fit for both the volunteer, each potential volunteer first participates in an interview process.  Interviews are scheduled only after a fully completed application packet has been submitted. A checklist is included in the application packet to let you know what additional paperwork needs to be submitted with your application.


All potential volunteers are invited to attend a General Volunteer Orientation session as the first step in the training process for new volunteers. General Orientation covers topics such as Fire Safety, Infection Control and Privacy Policy. This information is required for all health care workers, including volunteers, to understand.  For more information on orientations, please contact the Volunteer Services office.

Additional intake steps

During the intake, application and orientation process you can also expect to complete two Tuberculin (TB) Tests, discuss your immunization record, and attend additional site orientations as applicable to your placement.


"Confident Readiness" is a key concept in the training of our volunteers. We prepare you to be confident in your role as an Enloe Volunteer.  Training is structured to
provide each volunteer with the resources, information and skills necessary to serve in their volunteer placement. Depending upon placement area, training consists of facility orientation, classes, and on-the-job experiences.

On-going training, in-services, and update meetings are held throughout the year as needed for the education of our volunteers. Annually, all volunteers participate in Re-Orientation as a condition of participation in the volunteer program.
