Volunteer Orientation

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer at UP Health System – Portage. Your work as a volunteer will have positive effects on so many people throughout this community. 

Our volunteers are required to complete orientation prior to their start date.

It will be necessary for you to read and review all topics located at the bottom of this page. There is also a printed copy available for reading in Human Resources for your convenience. Once you have reviewed and completed all components of orientation, please reach out to our Human Resources Department for the next step in volunteer orientation.

Once volunteer orientation completion is acknowledged you will be required to complete a drug screening, two TB tests, background investigation, and acquire a photo ID badge prior to starting your volunteer placement.

We look forward to having you join our team as a volunteer at UP Health System – Portage. We hope it proves to be a rewarding and fulfilling experience for you!
