Do I need a certain level of experience to be a volunteer?

Yes and no. Our volunteer positions require different levels of experience. For instance, we need registered nurses, nurse aides, emergency medical technicians, physician’s assistants, physical therapists, etc. to fill our medical volunteer positions. However, we have many non-medical positions for volunteers to carry out a variety of responsibilities, including registration, directing participants, serving refreshments and much more.

How long does volunteering usually last?

Most of the time we ask volunteers to participate from 6:00 AM until 1:00 PM during a 9Health Fair (or multiple 9Health Fairs). Depending on whether you want to volunteer multiple times or have more responsibility, volunteer times may vary. If you’re interested in a year-round position, please contact the volunteer engagement department at (303) 698-4455 or (800) 332-3078 for more information.

How can I get more information about health screenings and assessments before I volunteer?

Your role is vital to 9Health Fair! We have an online education course funded by a grant from the Colorado Trust. For more information about what to expect and to access this course, click here.
