Volunteer opportunities

Volunteers make a significant impact at VCU Massey Cancer Center. Our volunteers give their time and talent, and each action changes the lives of our cancer patients. We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us.

Volunteer with patients

VCU Massey Cancer Center has many volunteer opportunities available for working in the outpatient clinics and inpatient units on a weekly basis. All volunteers must first complete the hospital volunteer application, health screening and orientation prior to being cleared to work with any unit at the VCU Medical Center, including Massey. Volunteer Services applications can be found here.

Questions about volunteering can be directed to Massey Cancer Center’s volunteer coordinator, Athena Huss, at (804) 828-8573 or Athena.huss@vcuhealth.org.
