Volunteer Information

Roper St. Francis is blessed with a team of more than 500 active and dedicated volunteers. If you are energetic, positive and compassionate, consider contacting us about current opportunities. Available positions change frequently so contact the volunteer coordinator in the facility of your choice to discuss where you might best be of service. Although many volunteers come two or three days a week, we ask that you plan to serve a four-hour shift once a week on a regular basis

Teen Volunteer Program

Students interested in health careers are encouraged to explore the variety of SCRUBS mentoring and career exploration programs offered at Roper St. Francis. There are very limited roles available for student volunteers. The minimum age is 15. Because of the training and orientation process involved, hospitals should not be considered as simply a place to earn short term assigned community service hours. Contact the Volunteer Coordinator in the facility you are interested in for further information about available positions or for an interview.

For other volunteer opportunities in the Lowcountry explore the Trident United Way volunteer database.
