Touch a Heart

Every RPCI volunteer impacts the life of a cancer patient and plays a vital role in maintaining the Institute's unconditional commitment to quality patient care. Whether you are 15 or 84, a high school student or a student of life, whether you are male or female, working or retired, you have what it takes to become an invaluable part of the RPCI team. All that's required is a few hours of your time and a willingness to help. Download an overview brochure to learn more about the program.

A Perfect Match

RPCI's Volunteer Program will match your talent and interests to the best available job whether in an administrative office or on a hospital unit. Are you an outgoing "people" person who enjoys a challenge? You might greet our guests at the front door or help them in the Chemo-Infusion Clinic or the hospitality room. Or are you the strong, silent type? You may be more comfortable entering data or preparing informational mailings. Do you love to make people smile or touch their hearts? Come and make music in our lobby or join the Humor Project. The Humor Project provides an opportunity for mutual support and for infusing humor into life. The Humor Project staffs a "humor cart" in the lobby and visits patients as well as participating in special RPCI events.

Always On the Go?

Wander our halls with a purpose as an Errand/Escort volunteer. Our E/E volunteers are trusted with mail deliveries, specimen transports and patient escorts, among many other projects and tasks.

Where else can you apply your expertise, uncover your hidden potential, gain invaluable experience, work a flexible schedule, meet some of the world's most renowned cancer professionals who care for some of the world's most incredible people, and feel like you've made a big difference in someone's life? And those aren't even the perks! Add free meals, free uniforms and free parking to the total package we offer. Whatever your special talent, RPCI has a valuable role for you.
