Volunteer Today! You’re an Essential Piece!


An Essential Piece

Isn’t it a wonderful thing that we’re all different? Each of us has strengths and skills to share. And when we link our individual strengths together, we’re invincible.

Most of us have given money to a favorite charity or canned goods to a local food bank. But only a few can say that we have given the ultimate gift - the gift of ourselves. Volunteers do just that, offering their time, their skills, and their compassion to those who most need it. Our volunteers are an essential piece of UT Health Northeast.

Why Volunteer?
Ask any volunteer - and they will tell you not what they give to their volunteer program, but rather what they get from it. The rewards of volunteering are many:

  • Using your unique talents to help others
  • Becoming a member of a special team of caring people
  • Meeting new people and making new friends
  • Growing as a person
  • Learning new skills
  • Giving back to our community
  • And much more!
