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

How Do I Become A College Student Volunteer?

College student volunteers must meet all requirements of the Adult Volunteer Program. View an INFORMATION SHEET describing the Adult Volunteer Program.
