College Volunteer Program

Torrance Memorial's college student volunteer program (ages 18-25) gives students a unique opportunity to experience a health care setting while gaining personal satisfaction through helping others. Our college student volunteers serve in departments throughout the hospital and make a lasting impression on our patients, visitors, and staff.

How Do I Become A College Student Volunteer

College student volunteers must meet all requirements of the Adult Volunteer Program and also complete a pre-application questionnaire. View an information sheet describing the Adult Volunteer Program.


Due to high demand, limited spaces are available for college volunteers at each orientation. A pre-application for consideration of invitation to the orientation will be available for a limited time prior to each orientation (see below). For best results, open the pre-application using Adobe Reader to complete the PDF form. Please apply only if you are available to attend both days of orientation and follow all instructions on the application for submission to the Volunteer Services office. Thank you.

September Orientation
The application process is now closed for the September orientation. There are no further orientations scheduled in 2014 as we prepare for the opening of our new Lundquist Tower scheduled for November, 2014. These are exciting times at Torrance Memorial! For information about our new tower please click here: Lundquist Tower

2015 Orientations

Orientation dates for 2015 are not yet available. Please check back in the fall. Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Torrance Memorial.

Please Note

There are no short-term, episodic, hands-on patient care, shadowing or observation opportunities through the college student volunteer program at Torrance Memorial.
