There are multiple volunteer opportunities available for adults and students ages 16 and older. Volunteers must have had all necessary doses of a COVID-19 vaccine AND have completed the waiting period to ensure the maximum immunity. Volunteers must always wear a mask (e.g., cloth) over the nose and mouth.

What’s in it for you? Shared smiles, new skills and personal fulfillment: The intangible benefits of volunteering are numerous. We also offer tangible perks, including meal vouchers, free parking and free fitness center access.

Our volunteers are special people committed to helping serve LVHN communities across the Lehigh Valley, the Poconos, Schuylkill and Luzerne counties
