Every day, thousands of volunteers throughout the country dedicate their time, energy and compassion to helping City of Hope save lives.
They make a tremendous difference – to the people we help and in the work we do.
More than 500 people volunteer their time and talents at our medical center in Duarte, Calif., just northeast of Los Angeles. Students looking for meaningful ways to support their community, retired individuals seeking new challenges, and many others with a desire to help volunteer here each day. From assisting patients and staff to driving trams, positions are available that match individual interests and schedules.

After you attend orientation, a few standard safety and security procedures will follow.
As with any hospital employee, new volunteers must undergo a background check, supply medical records confirming that they have a current measles, mumps, Rubella immunization, and take a tuberculosis test. This two-step skin test is required by regulatory agencies and is given free of charge to volunteer applicants.
Once this process is complete, our Security Department will take your photograph, issue an identification badge and provide a parking permit.
