Thank you for your interest in volunteering at CMC. Our volunteers are central to our mission of providing health, healing and hope to all those we serve. Our Volunteer Services staff are committed to connecting with potential volunteers, matching skillset and assignment opportunities, and making sure volunteers are achieving a sense of fulfillment. We ensure all volunteers are compliant with legal, safety and infection control requirements. 

If you are interested in volunteering, please call CMC's Volunteer Services Department at 603.314.4758 or follow the steps below: 

  1. Application & References—Complete our Volunteer Application and submit two reference forms to Catholic Medical Center Volunteer Services Department. 
  2. Interview—Once we have received and accepted your references, we will contact you to schedule an interview with the Manager of Volunteer Services. The interview will cover your interests and preferences, and give you a chance to share your ideas and learn about potential assignments. An additional interview with your potential supervisor may be offered to acquaint you with the opportunity.  
  3. Criminal Record Check—A New Hampshire Criminal Record Release is required for every new volunteer. At the time of your interview the Volunteer Department will provide you with the form to complete and we will notarize and mail the form to the New Hampshire State Police, at no expense to you.
  4. Health Screening—Just as other CMC staff, volunteers follow guidelines for safety and infection control. Our Employee Health Department will assist with necessary paperwork, Tuberculosis tests and other general evaluations. This is scheduled at your convenience and at no expense to you.
  5. Orientation—All volunteers are required to complete volunteer orientation, the orientation will provide you with the knowledge of hospital policies, parking, volunteer dress code, as well as other pertinent information.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at CMC. We look forward to working with you.

Teen Volunteers
Teen Volunteers are high school students between the ages of 15-18 who wish to serve in a hospital setting and gain exposure to healthcare careers. This opportunity offers students positive learning experiences while they provide much needed volunteer service. CMC accepts student applications throughout the entire year; however, available assignments are limited and students must be able to meet the eligibility requirements.

Eligibility Requirements:
  • Students must be able to contribute a minimum of eight hours of service per month throughout the year. Students may give more hours if/when it fits into their schedule and doesn’t interfere with their school work or other obligations. 
  • Students must make a minimum commitment of six consecutive months of service, preferably longer. Our hope would be that students would continue volunteering at CMC throughout their entire high school years.
  • Eligible students must be between the ages of 15-18 years old, have completed middle school, and be enrolled in, or about to begin, high school.
Qualified teens may apply by completing this online application:    Or contact the Volunteer Services Department at 603.314.4758 to request an application packet by mail.
