Becoming a Volunteer

If you have decided to give your time to McLaren Northern Michigan, your next step is to complete an application (see link below).

Once your application is received, we will review current volunteer openings and determine if any align with your interests and availabilities. We will contact you if there is a match. If a match is not identified, we will keep your application on file for six months.

If a match is identified, you will be contacted for an interview. We will check the references listed on your application and conduct a background check. If you are selected to be a volunteer at McLaren Northern Michigan, you will need to: 
  • Be 18 years of age or older.
  • Be in good physical and mental health without restrictions or communicable health conditions. 
  • Have documentation of a negative TB skin test completed within the previous 12 months or we will provide testing. 
  • Have a copy of immunizations for measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (chickenpox). If you have no records, titers results are required. 
  • Have documentation of Hepatitis B vaccination status (for those working in clinical areas that could be exposed to blood or body secretions) or record of declination. 
  • Have documentation of receipt of the current annual seasonal Flu Vaccine (excluding summer months May-September).
Once you have been cleared through this initial process, the next steps will be to obtain an identification badge and any special apparel or uniform required for you position. We will make sure you are oriented to our organization and receive appropriate training for your assignment.

Please complete the Volunteer Application including the confidentiality, authorization, and release portions and email them to or fax them to (231) 487-7881 to the attention of Volunteer Services.
