Become a Volunteer at Scripps Health in San Diego

The most rewarding reason to volunteer cannot be measured. As a volunteer, you gain valuable experience, learn new skills, make friends and meet others who share the same values and interests.

Perhaps most rewarding of all is the patient’s appreciation. A warm smile or encouraging word can mean as much to a patient as the services you provide. Scripps offers volunteer opportunities in a variety of areas. Plus, you’ll receive volunteer training in a professional, friendly environment, to make you feel comfortable and confident. We are committed to the success of our volunteers and hospice volunteers.
