Big Bend Hospice AmeriCorps Legacy Corps Member Application
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with our organization and the Big Bend Hospice AmeriCorps Legacy Corps program.

To be eligible to volunteer, you must be 18 years of age or older, commit to serving an average of 10-12 hours a week for the full term of service, have reliable transportation, and provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination.
