Almost all services at the Berkeley Free Clinic are provided by volunteers who have been trained at the clinic or by volunteer professionals. Each year, an estimated 180 people donate approximately 31,000 volunteer hours doing direct client service administration, fundraising, building maintenance, conducting trainings, and more.
If you would like to volunteer, or would like more information, come to a Volunteer Orientation held on the third Monday of every month at 7:30pm. The next Volunteer Orientations will occur on the following Mondays at 7:30pm at the Berkeley Free Clinic (2339 Durant Ave):
- May 20th, 2013
- June 17th, 2013
- July 15th, 2013
No previous medical experience is necessary to volunteer and become a member of the Clinic. Requirements do include a commitment to the struggle for free, accessible healthcare and health education, to community empowerment and unification, and to eliminating racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia. In most cases, volunteers are asked to make a minimum one-year commitment following training.
If you are a medical professional interested in volunteering your services, please contact us at email@example.com or (510) 548-2570.
