Are you looking for an opportunity for a group of people to volunteer? Then we’re the place for you! We can tailor a volunteer project to meet the needs of your employees, your community group, or your members. Just talk to us. If we know who you are, what you like to do, when you’re available, where you want to volunteer, we can find an assignment for you.
We are very excited to have a vital, vibrant volunteer force at our facility. Our goal is to ensure that the volunteer experience at the Orlando VA Medical Center is as rewarding to the volunteer as it is beneficial to the patients, families, visitors, and caregivers.
