Thank you very much for your interest in the volunteer opportunities at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). We could not serve hundreds of patients each day without the help of our amazing volunteers.
Our patients and their families come from the Puget Sound and worldwide to receive treatment, often far from home with limited financial resources and social interaction. Our dedicated volunteers provide vital practical and social support for our patients and their families in a variety of ways.
Last year, more than 250 volunteers actively support our patients and families by donating approximately 1,600 hours of time and talent each month.

Volunteers commit to mandatory training and three months of consecutive volunteer work. Because cancer patients can have compromised immune systems during their treatment, our volunteers must also meet immunization requirements–our nurses will administer any missing vaccinations during orientation.

Step 2: Mandatory two-part orientation:
Part 1 – Wednesday, October 17, 2018 3:30 – 6:30 pm
Part 2 – Wednesday, October 24, 2018 3:30 – 6:30 pm
Attendance at both sessions is required. Prior to orientation, our Occupational Health Nurse will have reviewed the Immunization/Health Assessment Form that you submitted with your application. During the two orientation sessions, we will visit with the Occupational Health nurses where they will administer any required immunizations. Please refer to the first page of the application for detailed information on the orientation and full TB/immunization process.
Step 3: Interview and placement
After completion of the volunteer orientation, health screening process, and all application paperwork is complete, you will be scheduled to meet with the appropriate department supervisor for an interview and begin role-specific training.
