Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking to get involved in your community? Do you want to make a difference? Then volunteering sounds like a great fit for you, and we have a number of opportunities available to meet your talents.

Please take a moment to complete our Volunteer Application Page, and tell us more about yourself.

We typically receive more than 300 volunteer applications per year, and unfortunately we are not able to place everyone.  If you are looking for more opportunities to share your talents with your community, then a great place to browse the needs of hundreds of local charities is ActivateGood.org

If we have an available position that is a good match with your interests and talents, then we will ask you to complete a volunteer application packet.  

Please note that most volunteer positions within the agency will require criminal background and sex offender registry checks.  Professional license checks will also be conducted (when applicable).

As we consider the valuable contributions of our volunteers to be an extension of our workforce, volunteers will be subject to the same codes of ethical conduct as paid employees.  A copy of the county's General Rules of Conduct is available by request.

*As we view the valuable contributions of our volunteers as an extension of our work force, we expect that all volunteers who are placed within the agency will follow the same Wake County General Rules of Conduct as paid staff members. (HR Administration Manual Section 600)

The WCHS Volunteer and Internship Services programs are a function of the Division of Community Engagement.
