Volunteering

Give the gift of time by becoming a Novant Health volunteer

The Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center volunteers provide community service appreciated by everyone they encounter. Volunteers enjoy camaraderie of being with others who share a similar interest in serving people in a healthcare setting. We hope you’ll consider joining this special group.

We are seeking volunteers who have a heart for service, thrive in a team environment and have excellent customer service skills. Successful candidates can commit to at least one year of volunteer service (minimum 4-hour shift each week).

As a volunteer you may:

  • Visit patients to ask about non-medical needs and offer emotional support
  • Provide non-clinical assistance to various departments within the hospital
  • Greet patients and visitors in our lobby areas
  • Assist patients and visitors with directions and help them find their way

If you enjoy interacting with people and serving others, please consider volunteering at Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center. Our volunteers know the rewards of helping others and making a difference in someone else's life.

Junior Volunteers can learn about healthcare by assisting staff, visitors and patients with non-medical tasks. Junior Volunteers must be able to follow directions, accept supervision and work independently.

Year Round Junior Volunteer Program

Applications for the Year Round Junior Volunteer Program are accepted between August 1st and August 31st. We look for mature students who can make a reliable commitment of one shift per week for an entire school year. Shifts are weekdays after school and 2 hours long. The Year Round Junior Volunteer Program runs from October to May. This is a highly competitive program and new volunteer spots are limited. To get started, please complete the Year Round Junior Volunteer Program.
