Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us. We are always accepting new professional and support volunteers to help serve our constantly growing patient population.

· All volunteers are required by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control to be tested for Tuberculosis once per year. This test is conducted by VIM personnel on your first day of volunteering.

· All volunteers must complete and sign a confidentiality statement and a code of conduct agreement prior to beginning work.

· Additionally, all volunteers must agree to be kind to our patients and treat each individual with respect and dignity.

Our dedicated team of caring volunteers all share common qualities. These individuals enjoy interacting with a variety of people and have made a commitment to helping others who are in need, while serving with concern and compassion. Our volunteers have positive attitudes and a sense of humor. All of our volunteers conduct themselves with dignity, courtesy, kindness and consideration while working in a professional manner.
