Emergencies happen. And you can help.
During disasters and emergencies, we need volunteers.
Temple has had to turn to the Temple community for help during real-world emergencies, including a mumps infectious disease outbreak and the global COVID-19 pandemic. In both cases, volunteer students, faculty and staff from central administration as well as our schools and colleges helped distribute vaccines to the Temple population. During COVID-19, we also distributed vaccines to our North Philadelphia neighbor community. Disasters and emergencies can occur at any time, so it is always helpful to learn about interested volunteers. Let us know today if you would like to get involved in a real-world response.
If you are interested in volunteering, please complete this volunteer interest form. Volunteers must have a valid TUid and temple.edu email address. Volunteers are not required to have prior experience or certifications.
Types of Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers are critical to any successful emergency response, whether in terms of medical needs, behavioral health outreach, emergency housing or food provision. Volunteers may assist in a variety of roles, including assisting those in need of help, distributing forms and information, mobilizing supplies, and providing other essential services. We also call on volunteers to help with large-scale preparedness exercises that simulate different kinds of emergencies and disasters.
