Volunteers are the heart of St. Petersburg Free Clinic!

Join us to help your neighbors in need in St. Petersburg and throughout Pinellas County.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, St. Petersburg Free Clinic has evolved and responded to the changing environment and increased need in our community. We maintain close communications with local medical professionals and public health officials about the COVID-19 health crisis. Additionally, we are continually monitoring the actions and recommendations of the Florida Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The health and safety of our volunteers, clients and staff is our top priority.

Current Volunteer Opportunities:

St. Petersburg Free Clinic offers a variety of volunteer opportunities.  Some require a minimum commitment of time – for example, we ask that those who volunteer in our drive-thru Food Pantry commit to 4 hours once per week for about three months.  Some require licensing (Health Center and Dental Clinic providers).  Whatever your availability and interests, we can likely find a great match for you.   And, you will be making an immediate impact in YOUR community – helping your neighbors in need.

We update this list of current volunteer opportunities regularly!

  • Health Center:  
    • Physician:  ENT Specialty 
    • Dentists (active Florida license required)
    • Dental Hygienists (active Florida license required)
    • Dental Assistants

NOTE: these are the only volunteer opportunities we have available at this time. Please check back for new opportunities soon – we update this page often!

At this time, due to staff capacity, we are unable to provide court-ordered community service hours. In addition, we are not able to accept any additional Bright Futures students who need to earn service hours – due to capacity as well as safety concerns. Please check back for updates.

How to Become A Volunteer:

If you are interested in volunteering for any of the opportunities listed above, please contact our Volunteer team at volunteers@stpetersburgfreeclinic.org.

PLEASE NOTE: While the Free Clinic is following all guidelines and best practices to keep our volunteers, clients and staff safe and healthy, we want to emphasize that when you choose to volunteer during this critical time, you are accepting some risk due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

In many of our volunteer positions, you will likely be interacting with multiple clients per shift. If at any point you do not feel comfortable volunteering, we encourage you to step away for now (please let us know first, of course), and we will welcome you back at any time. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the volunteer team right away so they may be promptly addressed.
