We love and appreciate our dedicated volunteers at Natividad. Their warm smiles and comforting demeanor enhance the patient experience by providing personalized assistance to patients and visitors. Volunteers are a key part of the extraordinary care we provide.

Our volunteers develop a variety of transferable skills while serving at Natividad.   Volunteers gain leadership skills and often learn more about themselves through their work and the connections they make working on a team.  Our opportunities further develop problem solving skills, adaptability, professionalism, and communicating with people of all backgrounds and ages.

Volunteers are assigned according to their interests and skills.
