Volunteer Opportunities 

Providence and Swedish employees are invited to apply for the following volunteer projects and will be accepted on a skills-needed, first come and first served basis. Volunteers are expected to participate in pre-trip orientation meetings, reflections and following the trip, debrief gatherings. Additionally, volunteers are asked to pay part of their travel costs, raise additional trip funds and use their PTO to participate. We invite interested applicants to fill out the volunteer interest form to help us find the best placement for you.
