Since the start of our Fall College Program application process, we have had a huge response by students interested in volunteering with us and we filled all College Program volunteer assignments at our Ann Arbor location. However, opportunities are still available at St. Joseph Mercy Livingston, Brighton, Canton and Saline.
We will reopen the College Program application process and start scheduling interviews again on December 1, 2013. for opportunities at all locations and will hold your application on file until then. If you are interested in volunteering Winter term, contact us starting in December through January when you have your winter class schedule and will be pleased to arrange an interview for you.

The College program is divided into three sessions (Winter, Summer and Fall). These sessions generally follow the times of a normal college semester. Students are accepted into the program after a successful completion of an interview with the Volunteer Services Department, the completion of paperwork, which includes a background check, and completion of a take-home Volunteer orientation packet.
Students are required to commit to a minimum of two sessions (eight months). The weekly commitment is one day a week for 4 hours on a set schedule. The placement is for an entire session but placements may change for the second session. We make every effort to place students in an area they are interested in, but placement id dependent upon the number of openings and number of students applying.
Start and end dates will vary but, in general, the session follows the normal college semester.
Winter – January through the end of April
Summer – May through the end of August
Fall- September through the end of December
