We feel that it is important that everyone interested in volunteering has a true understanding of the commitment required to volunteer, the process involved in applying, and how volunteers fit into the hospital or Southlake Residential Care Village environments.
To become a volunteer at Southlake you must be available to come to the hospital on 6 different occasions within a 4 – 6 week period in order to complete the following steps in the process:
Attend an Information Session (In-person morning or evening sessions OR available on-line 24/7)
Submit an application (paper or on-line)
- Complete an interview (45 minutes to one hour during regular office hours, Monday - Friday)
- Submit 2 references and a clean police check (vulnerable sector screening)
- Complete a 2-step tuberculosis test (requires 4 appointments either here on Wednesday/Friday during the day only, or at your Doctor’s office or Medical Clinic)
Attend a volunteer orientation session (2.5 – 3 hours, morning or evening sessions)
*Note: Police Check and TB test are not to be completed until after the interview.
We thank all of those who attend a Volunteer Information Session in-person or on-line and will respond to each person who chooses to submit an application. Due to fluctuations in the requirements for volunteers and the personal time availability of those applying for positions, we cannot guarantee that every applicant will obtain a volunteer placement.
Please note that the majority of our vacancies occur during the day Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
