Here's How to Volunteer
If you're interested in becoming an Avera St. Luke’s volunteer, start by completing an application for volunteer services. Applications can be obtained from the Volunteer Office or by calling 605-622-5140. The form is helpful in establishing skills and gives legality to your status as a volunteer.
An interview is conducted by the Director of Volunteer Services. This is an opportunity for us to get to know you, your interests, expectations, motivations, skills and availability. At the same time, you have the opportunity to become acquainted with the Volunteer Department and to ask any questions you may have about the program or Avera St. Luke’s.
Assignments are made through the Volunteer office, with consideration given to your interests and skills and the needs of the hospital. After a general orientation, your training will be on-the-job training specific to your position. You will be supervised by an experienced volunteer or staff member, as appropriate. The length of training will depend on the assignment and your comfort with the position. You will not be asked to work an assigned area alone until you feel comfortable doing so.
