Welcome to the Mayo Clinic Volunteer Programs page. Volunteers play a key role in making a difference for Mayo Clinic patients and visitors. Mayo Clinic volunteers provide patients and visitors with hospitality, services and amenities that would otherwise not be available. Follow this page to stay up-to-date on information and happenings pertaining to Mayo Clinic Volunteer Programs, as well as information that may be valuable when fulfilling your volunteer shifts.
Established in 1999, Heritage Days celebrates the history and culture of Mayo Clinic. Through a wide range of creative projects during the year and culminating in a dedicated week of events every October, Heritage Days strengthens our shared culture and commends all staff and volunteers, whose primary value is "The needs of the patient come first."
Recently, sign up links were sent to Mayo Clinic Volunteer Programs volunteers by email to assist with festivities in a variety of roles. Please sign up if you would like to get involved. If you have trouble signing up online, please talk to a Volunteer Programs staff member. We are happy to get you signed up.
Additionally, volunteers are welcome to attend any of the Heritage Days festivities. This web page provides additional information about the activities in Rochester: http://history.mayoclinic.org/tours-events/heritage-days-2019.php.
