Volunteer services

The mission of the Volunteer Services Department is to provide quality support services to our members, visitors, and staff in the Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles service area and to our local communities.

Our volunteers include men and women 15 ½ years of age and older, and represent the culturally diverse community which forms our customer service area. Many volunteers are Kaiser Permanente members, and all share a strong desire to help and a willingness to serve where they are most needed.

Volunteers are selected, place and trained based on their skills, abilities, and service orientation without regard for race, religion, national origin, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation preference or medical condition. Our volunteer opportunities change rapidly, therefore placement to a department is usually determined after the on-boarding process.

Minimum requirements to participate in Volunteer Program:

  • Applicant must be at least 15 1/2 years of age
  • A commitment to the same 4-hour shift each week
  • A commitment to volunteer for at least 200 hours over approximately one year’s time
