Volunteering to Change the Future of Cancer Care

You can make a difference in your community by becoming a volunteer at Miami Cancer Institute. Our volunteers come from diverse backgrounds and have different abilities, but they all share a common desire to serve others and help make our patients’ days a little brighter.

Volunteering Opportunities

As a volunteer at Miami Cancer Institute, you’ll gain as much as you give, whether it’s learning new skills, getting school credits or experiencing the satisfaction that comes from helping someone in need.

 

Volunteers fill many important roles, including spending time with patients and their loved ones during treatments, participating in community events alongside our staff members, helping with office duties, greeting guests, and much more. As a volunteer, you can choose the tasks and times that work for your lifestyle. However, a preferred schedule is 2-4 four consecutive hours on the same day and at the same time.

 

As part of your volunteer application, Miami Cancer Institute will request background information about you from a consumer reporting agency. Also as a member of our volunteer team, you will need an annual tuberculin skin test and influenza vaccine. You can learn more about our volunteer mission and standards by reviewing our Volunteer Handbook.
