We can work with your schedule to make the most of your valuable volunteer time.  Whether it’s once a week, or once a month or every other month, there is a need for your services. You must be currently licensed for your area of specialty in the state of New Mexico and have proof of medical malpractice insurance or be willing to be covered by the FTCA through Villa Therese Clinic.

Currently, we are looking for the following in licensed volunteers:

  • General Dentistry
  • Oral Surgeon (extractions)
  • Dental Assistant
  • Dental Hygienist
  • Physician, pediatrician, internist or family practice
  • Advanced Practice Nurse
  • Optometrist or Ophthalmologist

support and event volunteers

“I’ve met so many wonderful people volunteering at Villa Therese Clinic! And, I know that I’m making a difference for people in our community who really need it!”

This is a typical refrain from all our volunteers who make things happen at VTCC.  The clinic staff relies on volunteers to assist with archiving medical records, answering the telephone, filing or other administrative tasks.  With volunteers’ assistance, there’s more time for staff to attend to patient needs.

In addition, we often have projects that need a certain expertise like financial, marketing, legal or information systems. Villa Therese Clinic wants to “tap” into your talents. And, if you are interested in helping us to further our mission into the future, please consider serving on the Board of Directors.

Or if fundraising and working on our assistance programs are more to your liking, then check out our list of those volunteer activities. Whether it’s helping with the geranium sale, the Pack-2-School program or the annual winter fundraiser, volunteers play an important role in raising funds and helping our patients.

For questions or to sign up to volunteer, email execdirector@vtccsf.org or call 983-8561. Training provided.
