Volunteer Eligibility

The PNC is an effort by the Academic Health Center, Social Work, and Law programs at the University of Minnesota, volunteer liability insurance extends only to students actively enrolled in these schools. Because of this, we are only able to allow U of M Academic Health Center, Social Work, and Law students to volunteer at the clinic at this time.

Please email with any questions about volunteering.

Time Commitment

We appreciate that our volunteers have busy schedules and so level of commitment can vary depending on the time volunteers have available. At a minimum, volunteers should plan to spend:

  1. An average of 1 night per month in-clinic. Volunteers can expect to be in clinic from approximately 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

  2. One role meeting per month. These meetings will begin in November and will address any changes in clinic policy specific to their role or any concerns volunteers have (average 1 hour each)
