Leave a lasting impact

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Their desire to better the community has changed (and saved!) the lives of numerous patients and families. With the exception of our very limited staff team, everyone in the clinic is volunteering their time and energy for free. Individuals from all walks of life provide services as clinicians, receptionists, medical assistants, and administrative support.

If you're passionate about community care, healthcare for all, fighting food scarcity, promoting health literacy, or even if you're curious about these issues, the Ithaca Free Clinic could be the right place for you to volunteer your skills and time! Testimonials from former volunteers and our volunteer application can be found below.

“I loved volunteering at the clinic. Everything about it was great from the great patients to the providers and administrators to the nature of the volunteering job. It was always rewarding. Probably my favorite clinical experience leading up to medical school."

Morgan Chadwick


"The Clinic provided a direct way to benefit the health of the community by providing extremely necessary services."

Matt Chen


“I think the experiences altogether prepared me well for my future in medicine. Most importantly, though, it made me appreciate the beauty of service, and I have since made consistent efforts to continue to stay involved in service to my communities.”
