Providence Mount St. Vincent is a great place to volunteer!
We welcome you to join over 225 other community members, family members and teens who make a difference here at The Mount every day. Whether you can volunteer for a few hours a month or a few hours a week, we have an opportunity for you to work in an area that brings you great personal satisfaction.
Volunteers are an essential part of The Mount’s community.
Currently, volunteers (ranging in age from 14 to 95) offer their friendship and talents to promote the physical and spiritual health and well-being of our residents and program participants in countless ways. Volunteering at The Mount is a great way to make new friends, help other people, develop new skills and be part of a vital, caring community with a national reputation for excellence. Your time is an invaluable gift to the residents of The Mount!
"Studies show that people who volunteer 1 to 2 hours a week are healthier, live longer, and are more satisfied with their lives compared with nonvolunteers." - Prevention Magazine, January 2009
