Greetings Health Brigade volunteers!
Summer greetings to all volunteers, past, present, and future. We hope and trust you are all staying safe and healthy. A special shout out to volunteers who are assisting us each Saturday morning with our walk-up COVID testing. The days have been hot and the PPE can be cumbersome, but no one complains and each week 75 people are grateful to know they have competent volunteers taking care of their screening. Although a few other individuals are helping us on site, the vast majority are doing various forms of telehealth. We are deeply grateful to those volunteers who are able to assist us doing remote work during this challenging time.
We have been able to continue offering exceptional care to those least served because of our caring, competent, and compassionate volunteers. According to a most recent study, the estimated value of a volunteer hour in Virginia is $28.46 per hour in 2019, up 3.5% from 2018.
However at Health Brigade the value of a volunteer hour is PRICELESS!
If you are visiting our website as a prospective volunteer please be advised of the following policies:
If you are a licensed medical provider or a licensed mental health provider seeking to volunteer on a regular basis, please send your CV and a cover letter to the Volunteer Program Manager.
(If interested in a mental health internship, please send your CV and a cover letter to Dr. Muriel Azria-Evans, Director of Mental Health and Wellness.)
Currently, due to the constraints of COVID-19 and in an effort to minimize exposure and risk, Health Brigade will not be accepting applications for all other non-licensed volunteers.
If you would like us to keep your information on file for future reference, please send a resume and cover letter to the Volunteer Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In your cover letter, please indicate the department in which you would like to volunteer. (Medical Clinic, Mental Health & Wellness, Health Outreach & Advocacy and Administration and Development)
If you have any questions, please contact our Volunteer Program Manager at email@example.com. (Please Note: In order to volunteer at Health Brigade, you must be 18 years old and you must have an annual flu shot.)
We greatly appreciate your interest in Health Brigade. If there are volunteer openings, you will be contacted.
With deep and continued gratitude for your care, compassion, and support.
