Make a Difference

Please note: During our current circumstances we are not on-boarding new volunteers and have canceled our spring adult and high school orientations. You are still welcome to learn more about our program and the process for attending a future orientation. Please click on the appropriate link below for further information. We have been grateful for the many offers from community members to assist us temporarily during this challenging time. However, due to the extensive training required to volunteer in an acute hospital setting we do not offer short-term or episodic volunteer opportunities. If you are interested in other ways to assist Torrance Memorial, including in-kind donations or making masks for healthcare workers, please go to https://www.torrancememorialfoundation.org/donate. Thank you.


For more than 65 years the Torrance Memorial Volunteers have played an integral role in providing compassionate service to patients and visitors. With the opportunity to serve throughout the medical center as a volunteer, you will help with big and small requests alike. For example, you might assist surgery patients and families, provide information to visitors, or play the piano for the enjoyment of patients, visitors, and staff. You will be part of a team that is committed to helping others and enjoy a stimulating environment while volunteering at Torrance Memorial. Hospital volunteers interact with health care professionals, administrative staff and include almost 900 dedicated people who give of themselves to make Torrance Memorial a leader in providing health care to our community. Volunteer opportunities are also available beyond the hospital within Torrance Memorial Health System.
