Volunteer Opportunities at LeConte Medical Center
A highly dedicated group of men, women and young people are the heart of our volunteer program. These caring individuals contribute their time and talents to assist the hospital staff with needed tasks at LeConte Medical Center in the following areas:
Volunteer benefits include:
- A free meal for every 4 hours worked
- Free annual TB skin test
- 10% gift shop discount
- Annual celebrations!
The Volunteers are actively involved in fundraising projects for our Scholarship Fund that assists students wishing to pursue a medical career; and to fulfill our pledge to the capital campaign for LeConte Medical Center.
If you are interested in joining our adult volunteer team (over the age of 18), and are willing to commit at least 4 hours of service a week, for at least a year, simply download and complete this application
Research demonstrates that volunteering leads to better health. Come Volunteer with us! For additional information, contact the Volunteer Office at 865.446.8406.
Junior Volunteers (under the age of 18)
LeConte only accepts new Junior Volunteers for the summer months. Once a teenager has worked a full summer at LeConte, they are eligible to continue volunteering during the school year. Unfortunately, due to limited supervision on evenings and weekends, placement for active Junior Volunteers during the school year
is VERY limited.
