Volunteering at Seton

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!  If you have a heart to serve others, Ascension Texas is the perfect place for you to serve.  Our friendly, energetic, volunteers provide a welcoming presence throughout our ministry.

Volunteers serve inside the hospitals and in outpatient clinics throughout the area.  They provide non-clinical support to our staff, freeing up our staff to spend more time with our patients.  Volunteering is a great way to make new friends and make a difference all at once!

Volunteers commit to a 3 or 4 hour shift each week.  Shifts are available 7 days each week.  Due to the time and effort we put into screening, onboarding, and training new volunteers, we require a minimum 6 month commitment.  Our volunteer program includes college students, retired adults, and adults who are still active in the workforce. 

If you are currently active in the workforce and your employer offers Volunteer Time Off or donations to the Non-Profit organization where you will be serving, please reach out to one of our Directors of Volunteers so that we can discuss opportunities. We are grateful for your employer’s commitment to serving their greater community!
