Most volunteers participate on a regular schedule once a week, a few times a week or monthly for a shift of three or more hours. Your individual schedule will depend on the nature of your volunteer work and your availability.
All Geisinger volunteers are required to wear a volunteer uniform and a Geisinger name badge while serving so that they are easily identifiable.
The volunteer uniform is a red shirt, vest or jacket that is supplied to all volunteers upon the start of their service. The supplied uniform top is to be worn with navy, tan or grey pants (provided by the volunteer), a shirt with short or long sleeves and closed toed shoes.
