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. 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 is available for a limited time on the dates described below. 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.
