College Student Volunteer Program

The 2023 Fall semester application is now closed. The Spring semester application will be available November 3rd to November 17th 2023. Please check back during that time for the application link to apply.

College Students are an integral part of our volunteer base. Depending on the season, we have anywhere from 50 to 200 College Student Volunteers within Upstate’s inpatient and outpatient departments.

  • Ability to commit to volunteering one 4-hour shift, each week
  • Attend a mandatory virtual orientation 
  • Must be available for the entire semester; missing no more than 2 weeks


College student volunteers are required to volunteer for one, 4-hour shift per week. Volunteers must be available for the entire semester, missing no more than 2 shifts per semester. 

Volunteer shifts are typically Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm, or 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm, but may slightly vary per assignment.
