Where to Volunteer

Adult Volunteer Program

Adult volunteers must be at least 18 years old and not enrolled in school. Once an application is submitted, the applicant will be invited to interview with the Volunteer Services Department. The interview helps introduce the applicant to all the information and education necessary to begin service. The Department of Volunteer Services works hard to match interests and abilities to department needs. It should be noted that applying to the volunteer program and attending the volunteer orientation at Northwestern Medicine does not automatically guarantee acceptance and/or placement into the program. Placing volunteers is an intricate process involving many variables, which we take into consideration.

Adult Volunteer Application


Please call the Department of Volunteer Services at 815.759.4334 for more information.
