As a group of community hospitals in North Central Pa, we are delighted when those around us graciously support us through volunteering or auxiliary membership. Recent studies show that volunteering brings happiness, improves your health, reduces stress and boosts your self-esteem. So, come discover how you can make a difference in the health care of your community by working with UPMC.
UPMC offers volunteer opportunities for individuals of all ages at our hospitals in PA, and other locations. Discover how you can make a difference.
Adult volunteers can help patients directly or assist in non-patient care areas. Volunteers play a major role in our commitment to provide high-quality, compassionate, cost-effective and accessible healthcare to our patients and the community.
A number of different opportunities are available to suit the interests of our adult volunteers including:
The VolunTEEN program is currently on hold.
VolunTEENs are recognized as an important part of the hospital family. They support the services of departments by assisting patients and staff.
VolunTEENs experience personal satisfaction and self-worth as a result of serving others, working as part of a team and learning to manage time effectively. In addition, they build confidence while learning about healthcare careers.
Apply online (teens must be at least 15 years old).

Being a member of one of our four hospital auxiliaries affords a stimulating opportunity for social interaction with other dedicated people working together to support our community hospitals. Men and women of all ages participate in rewarding activities. Get involved in a fundraising committee or lend your support in a variety of other ways. No matter what, your membership is vital to the work of our auxiliaries.
Opportunities for development of leadership skills are offered through positions of responsibility within each organization. State and regional meetings give members the opportunity to network, share ideas and make leadership roles challenging and satisfying.
UPMC auxiliaries are members of the Pennsylvania Association of Hospital Auxiliaries (PAHA) and participate in activities of the Central Region Association (a geographical division of PAHA).
