How to become a volunteer at HealthPartners

The application process for our year-round and summer programs is the same.

What to expect

After you submit your volunteer application, there are still a few more steps before you can volunteer. It generally takes three to four weeks to complete the process.

We’ll review your application, and contact you via email to schedule an interview. During the interview, you’ll tell us about yourself, your interests and your availability. This helps us find the best opportunities to match your talents.

You’ll need to bring these documents to your interview:

Upon acceptance into the program after your interview, you’ll need to complete an online orientation. You’ll also need to complete a State of Minnesota background check.

You’ll complete onsite training with a team member in the department where you’re volunteering.

If you have any questions about the volunteer application process, contact us at 651-254-5709 or volunteerservices@healthpartners.com
