UPDATE (1/11/2022): Please note the following changes/impacts:

- Minor Volunteers in both clinical and non-clinical programs are currently being reviewed and approved case by case for in-person volunteering.
- When the pause is lifted:
- All volunteers are required to wear a Volunteer ID badge once cleared and BEFORE starting any volunteer/lab activities. Badge buddies are required to be worn.
- All volunteers are required to be supervised at all times when performing their duties (Personal Protective Equipment [PPE] and social distancing guidelines must be adhered).
- Minor volunteers cannot be granted computer/system accesses that would require Mednet AD/login accounts.
You must have been invited to volunteer by a designated department faculty and/or staff within UCLA Health and the UCLA Schools of Medicine, Public Health, or Nursing.
Invitation and eligibility into the program is at the discretion of these departments and the UCLA Health Sciences Volunteer Office. Priority will be given to UCLA undergraduates.
Prospective Minor Volunteers are typically invited by UCLA faculty and/or staff to assist with Administrative Projects and/or Basic Science Research Projects.
