Interview

Once we’ve reviewed your application, a Volunteer Services recruiter will contact you to schedule an interview. Interviews are conducted in April and the selection is based on your application, essay, two reference evaluations, previous community service experience and your personality. If accepted, the recruiter will place you based on current available positions.

Orientation

A 2-hour Orientation class is held every year in May. Your recruiter will provide you the date of the class, which generally begins at 8:30 a.m. A parent must attend the class with their teen.

PPD Testing

A PPD Test determines whether or not you have tuberculosis (TB), a serious infection that spreads through the air. The Employee Health Office will administer the test to volunteers free of charge.

Flu Shot

During flu season (as decided by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention), volunteers must receive a flu shot prior to their first day of work. Please provide proof of the flu shot to the hospital. Ask your Volunteer Services recruiter about free flu vaccines provided by Summerlin Hospital. If you have any questions, please contact Volunteer Services at 702-233-7532.
