Volunteering at Mayo Clinic: The Unseen Benefits

Those who consider Mayo Clinic for volunteer work are attracted to our healing mission and our commitment to the needs of patients and their families. Our volunteers are dedicated to helping others. They assist staff, patients and families throughout the health continuum, offering another set of ears, eyes and helpful hands in tender, loving service.

We offer our volunteers flexible schedules in stimulating environments. About 25 percent of our volunteer population is college students, typically pre-med or pre-nursing. We have a summer program for local high school students, though the application period for 2020 is closed. There are a few exceptions for home-schooled students and those that participate in early college programs; please contact the Volunteer office with specific questions about options for high-school students.
