volunteer Training and Orientation

Once your volunteer application has been processed, a member of Hospice of Chattanooga’s volunteer services team will contact you to schedule volunteer orientation and training.

The purpose of orientation and training is to ensure our hospice volunteers are acquainted with the Hospice of Chattanooga philosophy, as well as the agency’s mission, values, policies and procedures. Each training session is tailored to the volunteer’s specific role within the organization, including office support, community education, special events or working directly with our hospice patients and families. The amount of training you receive will depend upon the type of help you would like to give as a volunteer.

The volunteer orientation and training process is always ongoing at Hospice of Chattanooga. We do our best to accommodate our prospective volunteers’ schedules when performing orientation and training.
