Become A Volunteer

Prospective CMMC volunteers must first complete a Volunteer Services application. Call 207-795-2472, and an application, brochure and postage-paid envelope will be mailed to you. If you prefer, you can download the application or apply on-line.

Applicants can also visit the Volunteer Services office and pick up an application between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Volunteers are usually there, should you need help with the application.

(Job shadowers, interns and practicum students, as well as any applicant born after January 1, 1957, must provide a current copy of his/her immunization records.)

Applicants will be contacted by telephone by the Volunteer Services director to schedule an interview. Interviews, which last about 45 minutes, help determine appropriate placement at CMMC.

CMMC Volunteer Health Screening Tests

Volunteers will be asked to discuss their health history during the initial interview. Also, anyone who becomes a volunteer must have an annual TB screening. The test involves a relatively painless prick in the skin of the forearm. The applicant must report back to the Employee Occupational Health Office about 48 hours later for a follow-up check. Most TB screenings result in a normal reading; however, if the TB screen is abnormal or if the volunteer is unable to have a TB skin test, a chest x-ray will be required. The initial screening and annually follow-up screenings are provided free of charge.

All applicants born on or after January 1, 1957 must provide a current copy of his/her immunization records (this includes teens applying to the Junior Volunteer program as well). Applicants must have had at least one tetanus vaccination and two MMRs (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccinations within the past 10 years.
