Students & Volunteers

Students and volunteers make up an important resource for our community, working together for the betterment of all. Ideally, volunteers find the donation of their time and energy a meaningful experience for themselves as well as for the organization - a true win/win situation.

Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic believes the health of one person is the health of humanity. Our priority is providing primary care to the Washington and Oregon communities we serve. Services are based on a patient-centered medical home model. During placement you will interact with dedicated providers and staff serving an economically and culturally diverse population of adults and children. Some placements with YVFWC sites may require bi-lingual skills.
