Pre-Placed Volunteer

A Pre-Placed volunteer is a volunteer who has already established a relationship with a department and attained a volunteer placement prior to attending New Volunteer Orientation.

Instead of providing the two letters of recommendation, a pre-placed volunteer will need to obtain a letter from the BWH department supervisor to submit to OSSVS prior to being registered for NVO.

The letter must be written on department letterhead and include the following information:

  1. A description of the duties the volunteer will be performing
  2. Volunteer's weekly schedule (days and hours-should be no more than 9 hours per week)
  3. Volunteer's start date and an end date

All other instructions for Getting Started are the same as for General Volunteers.
