Volunteer Services

Our volunteers have unique reasons for volunteering their time and skills. Duke Health volunteers have the opportunity to service our patients, their families, the staff, and the greater community while also gaining the personal satisfaction of knowing that they have helped others. Please visit each program's web page for more information about current or upcoming volunteer opportunities:
