Welcome to Massachusetts Eye and Ear Volunteers! Join our diverse team of volunteers and see how you can make a difference to our patients, visitors, and staff. Our Adult and Student Programs offer a variety of opportunities and time commitments to match your interest. The first step to become a volunteer is to choose a program and complete the application. Applicants must meet all program requirements to apply.

Our volunteers play an important role as members of the Mass Eye and Ear community. They provide the extra support that can help make the patient experience easier. Volunteers work in a variety of areas including:

  • Specimen Transport and Patient Escort
  • Surgical Center
  • Surgical Chart Room
  • Family Waiting Room
  • Adult Inpatient Unit 
  • Pediatric Inpatient Unit and Child Life Program

The Volunteer Department works to match interested volunteers with appropriate and compatible assignments. Volunteering has its own special rewards and we are confident that you will gain a sense of satisfaction and a feeling of accomplishment. We invite you to join our volunteer community.
