Volunteering

Each year thousands of people serve as Banner Health volunteers serving local community needs — helping people in emergencies, raising funds for equipment and services, providing blood, organizing programs for the elderly, for the youth ... and more. Volunteers are an important part of Banner Health's mission of making health care easier, so life can be better.

  • TIP: Please set your location above in order to see the volunteering opportunities near you!  

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, ranging from high school students to adults to seasonal visitors and retirees.

Our volunteers work directly with people and provide behind the scenes support. Our goal is to find a match for your interests with opportunities at our medical facilities and through our community programs.

Everyone who is interested in volunteering should expect:

  • An interview with a volunteer services representative at your local facility
  • A tuberculosis test either by skin or blood testing
  • A background check

Additionally, you will be required to submit proof of vaccinations. Once accepted as a volunteer, you'll be given an ID badge and location-specific uniform pieces. For questions, contact the volunteer services department at your local facility.

Benefits of Volunteering

There are many benefits of volunteering including:

  • Making a difference by giving back to your community through service to others.
  • Contributing to the Banner Health mission of creating an excellent patient experience 
  • Meeting other like-minded people while serving a collective purpose.
  • Developing professional skills and gaining valuable experience in the health care setting that young people need in applying for jobs, scholarships and college programs.
  • Learning about the industry in general, including the relationship between the patient, the community and the health care providers.

Tucson volunteers provide integral support to Banner’s mission of “making health care easier so that life can be better,” and are dedicated to maintaining a high standard of excellence, while maintaining Banner’s values and purpose.

Through generous gifts of time and talents, our volunteers make health care easier through direct assistance to our patients and their families, and by enabling our staff to provide high-quality health care in a reasonable time-frame.

Requirements to Become a Volunteer

  • A time commitment of at least 2 hours each week for a minimum of 3 months.
  • Be 16* years of age or older. 
  • Be able to provide current up-to-date immunization records, a negative TB test (within the past 12 months), MMR, Varicella and Influenza vaccination (seasonal). 
  • Attend an interview. You will be asked to provide your up-to-date immunization records at the time of your interview. 
  • Ability to pass a background check

** 15 – 18 years of age for participants of our Summer Teens Teaming Up Program offered June – July.

Immunization Requirement Details

TB Test - Banner requires a negative read on the TB skin test or blood test (done within the past 12 months). Because Banner University Medical Center operates a trauma center, Banner is required to follow a 2-step process. A second TB test will be administered during the on-boarding process, and a TB test is required on an annual basis thereafter.

MMR Vaccinations - Banner requires evidence of MMR immunity for all volunteers. Immunity is obtained from either having had the diseases or receiving 2 doses of the MMR vaccine during your lifetime. (MMR immunity is not required if you were born before 1957). Either documentation of 2 MMR vaccines, or a positive MMR blood titer will satisfy Banner’s one-time requirement for proof of immunization.

Varicella Chickenpox Vaccinations - Banner requires evidence of Varicella immunity for all volunteers. Immunity is obtained from either having had the disease or receiving vaccinations. Either documentation of 2 Varicella vaccines, a positive Varicella blood titer, or proof of 2 Varivax vaccines will satisfy Banner’s one-time requirement for proof of immunization. Historical proof of Varicella immunity may be provided by your physician through a formally-written and signed letter on your physician’s official letterhead.

Influenza Vaccination - The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determine the official timeframes of flu season each year – typically October through April.  Each year, Banner requires seasonal documentation of flu vaccination for all volunteers.
