Current Volunteers

We appreciate all of our hard-working and caring volunteers at UNC Medical Center. Please visit the links below to find important information for current volunteers.

Recording Volunteer Hours

All volunteers working at Chapel Hill or Hillsborough Hospital must sign in and out at one of the kiosks (which are located in the Volunteer Services office, the Memorial Hospital and Cancer Hospital Info Desks, and the Hillsborough Hospital workroom). All volunteers may view and print their hours in the “My History” tab on the web kiosk sign-in at Volunteer Services in Memorial or Hillsborough Hospitals.

If you volunteer somewhere other than Chapel Hill or Hillsborough Hospital, or you were unable to clock in and out at a kiosk, volunteers may submit their hours using the online submission form within 24 hours of their scheduled shift.
