Volunteers must make a commitment for at least 150 hours be able to work at least once a week for four hours. An extensive clearance process is required. This typically takes 8-12 weeks to complete and is not included in your 150 hour commitment. You must be at least 14 years old to volunteer.
Because there are big-bot staff who do not do anything all day long and just spend their time to fill up their time. They always go to meeting and event which has a lot of free cookies and eating. They eat a lot and this is being done in a very cheap way, I would say most of crew are from poor and under represented families. While they literally per-function and do not do anything during working hour, their behavior toward volunteer is so pushy and insulting so that they order to do all labor work over and over. I found no fairness and justice among them in general but there are very few responsible people among those whole damn. Some of them are even pillferer because I have been witness in several occasion that they steal those gifts and toys which we receive from charity etc.... In general I would not recommend this place for volunteering despite CUMC and hospital have big name and reputation.

I am a person that likes helping people andI have friends that do too. The way this world is now a days, the ones that cares the most about what they do are the people that volunteer. It's not the money that we love but it's the smiles on the paitents faces. I love to help people and I hope one day that if i'm ever in need that someone that I dont know will treat me the same.
