Volunteer Services

Why volunteer?

At Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, volunteers are an essential part of our health care team, helping us deliver compassionate, world-class care to our patients and visitors. Our volunteer program offers many rewarding and meaningful opportunities — from interacting with patients to assisting staff or providing administrative support.

Who can volunteer?

Volunteers are a diverse group of people — young adults, college students, stay-at-home parents, as well as professionals and retirees. As a values-based organization, we choose individuals with a strong work ethic and those who possess personal values of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence.

How to become a volunteer

Applicants for volunteer service at Houston Methodist Willowbrook must meet certain requirements, including passing a background check and drug screening, obtaining a TB test and flu shot each year, as well as annually completing the online educational and safety training modules.

To submit an application

For adult volunteers (not in high school and age 18 and older), please download and complete the Volunteer Application and Volunteer Background Check Form for our year round program. Applications are kept on file for six months. If your application is chosen for interview, you will be contacted.


Summer 2021 Student Program:

Due to the suspension of our volunteer program on March 14, 2020 for COVID-19 safety concerns, our limited Summer 2021 program will be offered to those students who had already been accepted for the 2020 Summer program.  For those students, you will be contacted directly to determine your availability and continued interest.  At this time, a waitlist for prospective student volunteers for 2021 is not anticipated.  Thank you for your understanding.

The Summer 2022 process will be available on-line by the end of January 2022.
