Adult Volunteers

Somerset: 908-685-2952

The safety and well-being of our patients, visitors, staff and volunteers is our number one priority. As we continue to proactively respond to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have come to the difficult decision to temporarily suspend all volunteer activities at RWJUH Somerset. Thank you for your interest. Adult applicants may submit an adult online profile form for future consideration and we will respond once we are able to resume our volunteer activities.

Volunteer opportunities are available mornings, afternoons and evenings, seven days a week. There are a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available– we invite you to join us and help make a difference in the lives of the patients, families, and staff at RWJUH Somerset.

Volunteer Service Requirements:

  • Volunteer Profile Form: Online submission including two personal references: Somerset
  • Personal Interview: Meet with the director of Volunteer Services

After we receive your completed form and your references have been contacted, we will contact you for an interview. During the interview, we will ask some preliminary questions about your interests and availability. We listen carefully to prospective volunteers' interests and goals and make every effort to place them in positions that will be interesting and satisfying while meeting the needs of the hospital.
