How do I get started?

The first step in becoming a Kate’s Kart volunteer is to complete our volunteer application.  Upon receipt of your application, the Director will contact you regarding setting up an orientation in the Kate’s Kart office, and help you begin your application/orientation within the hospital you are serving.  Once your application, hospital orientation and TB testing has been completed, you will be scheduled for a training session with an experienced Kate’s Kart volunteer.  During this session, you will learn what parts of the hospital to visit with the Kart, where the Kart is stored, accurate record keeping of the Kart’s inventory, and what to say to the  patients and families.
