Training for Your Position

Each volunteer placement has a distinct training procedure. Depending upon your particular placement in a department, you will receive additional orientation and training from a specific staff member in that department. Some placements require you to “shadow” a senior volunteer who has been trained as a volunteer trainer. This volunteer will guide you as you learn the critical elements of the volunteer position.

The Final Step

The final step is to ensure that all these required documents and steps have been completed before you begin your volunteering. At that time, you will be given a start date to begin your training.

These procedures are in place to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our patients, staff members, and guests.

Please call the Department of Volunteer Services at 215-728-2804 if you have any questions or email us at VolunteerServices@fccc.edu.
