About Our Adult Volunteer Program:

Typically, the greatest variety of volunteer opportunities become available during our spring and fall recruitment periods. It is only during these time periods that we recruit new adult volunteers, as we are fortunate to host many ambitious high school and college students during the summer months.

  • Participate in a health appointment with Employee Health. (There is no charge for this. All arrangements will be made for you through Friends of Strong).
  • Commit to volunteer three or four hours per week for a minimum of one year.
  • You agree to submit to a background check, including Federal Exclusions and State Sanctions.
  • You agree to any additional requirements that are mandated by the University of Rochester.
