Volunteer

Geisinger volunteers serve our patients, their families and our communities, and help our team provide excellent, compassionate care. While each person has unique reasons for contributing his or her time and skills, all volunteers gain personal satisfaction through service to others. 

Do you want to become part of a diverse group of individuals? Are you retired, but not ready to give up the bustle of the workplace? Do you have talents and skills to share with your community? Are you a high school student seeking a service opportunity? Are you a college student looking for some real-life experience? Do you just want to have a closer look at a healthcare system? If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, contact us.
