Volunteering

Are you interested in helping the community, meeting new people, and gaining valuable personal and professional experience? If so, sign up to volunteer with TCC! We are always in need of helping hands in many areas.

Here are just a few of the opportunities that are available:

Reach Out and Read (ROR) Volunteer

Do you have a love of reading? Do you like kids? Consider becoming a Reach Out and Read (ROR) Volunteer! Reach Out and Read (ROR) is a nation-wide pediatric literacy program that builds on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers to develop critical early reading and a love of books in children, beginning at 6 months of age. ROR volunteers read to children in the waiting rooms of our clinics, creating a literacy-rich environment and modeling important reading techniques to parents. An excellent opportunity for volunteers interested in health care or pediatrics.

Health Education and Outreach (HEO) Volunteer

Have a passion for community health and health education? Become a Health Education and Outreach (HEO) volunteer! HEO volunteers work directly with our HEO team to educate our community on the variety of resources available to them! Volunteers work on a variety of projects, from clinic lobby education, health fairs, health education curriculum and so much more!

Special Events Volunteer

Be a part of the team that works behind the scenes for TCC’s special events? From Beach Walk to Read Across America, TCC’s special events are always in need of eager workers to help with set-up, registration, and clean up. Our yearly calendar includes:
–    Read Across America (Spring)
–    National Health Center Week (Summer)
–    Annual Beach Walk (Fall)
–    Holiday Toy Drive (Winter)
–    Book Drive (Year Round)

 

Volunteer Time Commitment Policy

With the exception of Special Events volunteers, we ask all volunteers to commit to a minimum of 300 service hours over a 6-month period. This enables the volunteer to get the most out of their volunteering experience.

Please note that since general volunteers will be working directly with our patients, we ask all volunteer applicants to submit to a background check and to have their medical requirements (physical, TB test, seasonal flu shot, immunization record) cleared before they are eligible to volunteer.
