College Volunteers

Mayo Clinic volunteer smiling

College volunteers are between the ages of 18 and 25 and currently enrolled in a college or university. A commitment of two shifts a week for the entire semester is required.

The college volunteer positions are extremely competitive, so not all students who apply and interview will be accepted. Students invited to participate will be placed in service areas based on our program needs.

Volunteering at Mayo Clinic should not be viewed as a means of obtaining employment. If you are seeking a paid position, visit Jobs at Mayo Clinic.
