2018 General Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Coachella Valley Volunteers In Medicine clinic! Our mission is to provide no-charge, primary health care services to medically underserved people residing in the Coachella Valley. We do this predominately through the provision of primary medical and dental care, though certain medical specialty services are also provided.

We rely on the time and talents of volunteers to complete a variety of tasks to keep the clinic operating efficiently. We ask those who accept a volunteer position with CVVIM to commit to a minimum 5-hour shift, 2 shifts per month for an initial 3-month period.
