Join us, and make a difference at El Camino Hospital and in your community.

When you join the El Camino Hospital Auxiliary, you have an opportunity to make a difference in your community. And, you’ll find that the satisfaction you feel from helping others will far exceed your efforts — whether you contribute a few or many hours. We match your interests and skills with our needs to help you find a volunteer role you feel passionate about.

Join the Auxiliary

In order to volunteer, you must become a member of the Auxiliary. Simply fill out an application (for applicants 18 and older) and email it to us or fax it to 650-966-9213. A placement counselor will call you to arrange a personal interview at the Mountain View or Los Gatos Auxiliary office.

In order to receive an adult membership, we require that you:

  • Commit to 12 hours per month, for a minimum of six months.
  • Undergo a background and health check.
  • Provide an initial joining fee of $20. There’s an annual membership fee of $20 for subsequent years.

Junior Auxiliary Volunteers

Students who are at least 14 years old and have completed eighth grade are eligible to join the Junior Auxiliary Program in Mountain View and Los Gatos. Junior Membership requires a commitment of at least one year or 100 hours of service.

Please note that El Camino Hospital Auxiliary does not offer summer internships or programs lasting less than one year. Once a student becomes a volunteer, he or she can stay through the summer after high school graduation.

How to Become a Junior Auxiliary Volunteer

The Auxiliary appreciates the tremendous interest in the Junior Auxiliary program. The program is highly competitive, and there is a limited amount of open positions available.
