Volunteers without relevant health care professional skills will be able to volunteer is several other capacities. Volunteers assist with patient registration, language translation (if you have language skills to offer), dental sterilization, supply stocking and lay technicians in our vision lab. We ask that you be flexible concerning your work assignment at the clinic. We have many jobs that need to be filled; you might not be able to volunteer for a specific assignment. Although we will do our best to honor location and assignment requests, and will do our absolute best to accommodate any physical restrictions you might have, general volunteers will mostly be assigned duties when they arrive based on our greatest need at the time. We have to get the clinic operations up and running each morning, so things can be very busy. You will find that it is easy to enjoy working in wherever you end up at the clinic. You’ll get to meet new people and make new friends!
