Enjoy a rewarding experience as a volunteer
Volunteers enrich the experience of patients, families, visitors, and employees. There are many reasons people choose to volunteer; whatever reason brings you to the Perham Health team, we’re thrilled you’re interested in pursuing your community involvement with us. You can make a difference in the lives of our patients, residents, and their families while supporting the work of our medical staff and contributing to our healing environment.
There is a wide range of volunteer positions at Perham Health and at Perham Living and we do our best to accommodate your interests and talents.
We appreciate your community spirit and look forward to welcoming you to our team of caregivers.
Summer VolunTeen Program
Whether you are interested in the medical field or you would like to be part of a program that makes a difference in the lives of patients, residents and visitors, being a VolunTeen at Perham Health offers a very rewarding experience. If you are between 16-18 years old by June 3, 2019, you should consider volunteering at Perham Health.
VolunTeens will volunteer on both the Perham Health and Perham Living campuses and do things like visit with patients and residents, help families with way-finding, support staff with clerical tasks, help with activities, and much more. Opportunities to volunteer are available Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays, mornings and afternoons.

We like to see our volunteers commit to one, two to four-hour shift a week. However, we understand busy schedules and appreciate any amount of time. We will work with you to find the right assignment to fit your schedule.
Not a problem. We think it is great you want to take time out of your busy schedule to make a difference in lives of our patients, residents, families, and visitors. Be sure to mark your availability as seasonal on your application and we can discuss the opportunities that are available to fit your schedule.
When you have vacation plans or determine a short leave of absence is needed, we appreciate advanced notices so we can plan accordingly.
That is okay. Please select “undecided” below the Assignment Preference section on the application, and we will work together to find an area of interest.
