FWBCHD needs volunteers.  Volunteers may help in many different ways, e.g., health department projects, annual community events (such as seasonal flu clinics), and/or assisting the agency during public health emergencies.  If you have a desire to help people in your community, a willingness to learn, and want to be involved in a program that helps people in our area, you might consider volunteering with us.

What types of volunteers are needed?

We seek volunteers with medical and non-medical backgrounds. 

Will I have opportunities to get additional training?

Yes.   All volunteers are asked to attend orientation training.  Additional training is offered, at various times, annually.  Volunteers are encouraged to participate in ongoing training workshops.

How much time is required of FWBCHD public health volunteers?

Our volunteer program has lots of flexibility.  The amount of time you volunteer depends upon several factors:  your level of interest, the amount of time you have available, and the number and types of FWBCHD volunteer projects /events.  There are no minimal time requirements asked of our volunteers.

Interested in learning more about FWBCHD's volunteer program?

It's easy to learn more.  FWBCHD periodically holds free volunteer information meetings that provide additional information on our volunteer program.  These informal meetings provide general information about FWBCHD's volunteer program and gives participants opportunities to ask questions.  Volunteer Information meetings are open to the public.  There's no obligation by attending and absolutely no pressure to join.
