Minor Volunteer - UCLA Health Sciences Programs
The following program is for invited students who are 16-17 years of age.
Starting May 1, 2021: The Minor Volunteer Program will reopen the clearance process to prepare volunteers for Summer 2021. The following must be met in order to register as a volunteer with your inviting lab (check with your lab supervisor to verify all will be met):
- You are expected to be approved to conduct research in-person within non-clinical spaces for the entire summer (requires volunteer office approval). Clinical spaces (including buidlings) and contact with patients/participants are not yet approved for volunteers to return.
- Effective June 1, ROP approval is not required for in-person volunteering under the Non-Clinical Program.
- Volunteers in the Clinical Program must still complete the Return to Service and Re-Activation process with the UCLA Health Sciences Volunteer Office to be on campus.
- You are required to obtain a Volunteer ID badge once cleared and wear it BEFORE starting any volunteer/lab activities. (Badge applications will be mailed by the CHS Volunteer Office once clearance is completed.)
- You will be supervised at all times when performing your services/research (PPE and social distancing guidelines must be adhered).
- You are not volunteering to be or remain remote for the duration of your assignment/project.
- You will not have or be granted 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.
Please review the Volunteer Eligibility Requirements before proceeding with the clearance process.
