Make a Difference

Message to prospective volunteers: We appreciate our community's support and interest in volunteering at Torrance Memorial as well as your patience while we had limited opportunities to join our program during the pandemic. We recently conducted an adult volunteer orientation and completed a high school program application process. Orientation dates for 2022 have not yet been determined. Please monitor our website for further information and click on your area of interest below to learn more.


For more than 70 years, Torrance Memorial volunteers have played an integral role in providing compassionate service to patients and visitors. Our volunteer program includes nearly 900 dedicated people who give of themselves to make Torrance Memorial a leader in providing health care to the broad South Bay community. With the opportunity to serve throughout the medical center as a volunteer, you will contribute to the patient experience by helping with big and small requests alike. A few examples: you might help patients and visitors find their way on campus, assist surgery patients and families, provide helpful information, 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 in a stimulating and collegial environment. Hospital volunteers interact not only with patients and families but with health care professionals, and administrative staff. Volunteer opportunities are also available beyond the hospital within Torrance Memorial Health System.
