Placement Sessions

The next opportunity to be a student volunteer is Summer semester. Registration will open on Wednesday, April 10 at 10 a.m. Registration for Fall semester volunteering will open Wednesday, July 17 at 10 a.m.
 

Required Health Screening Documents

All attendees must bring proof of having had 2 doses of MMR vaccine and 2 doses of Varivax (Chickenpox) vaccine during their lifetime. Students must also bring the results of 2 negative TB skin tests. At least one of the TB tests must be taken within the three months prior to the placement session the student attends (must be dated October 10, 2018 or later). The other can be from anytime in 2018. (It is acceptable for both tests to be dated October 10 or later but at least one must be and both must be from 2018/19.) Due to a required 7 day waiting period between tests, students should begin the health screening process at least two weeks prior to the placement session they plan to attend to complete the tests in time. Any student with a positive test result should contact Piedmont Athens Regional's Occupational Health Department at 706-475-3357 for further instructions.

Additionally, all volunteers are required to provide proof of having had a a flu vaccine this fall. Students desiring to apply for a religious or medical exemption from taking a flu vaccine may do so by contacting the Volunteer Services Office or emailing Tracey.Edwards@piedmont.org. December 20 is the deadline to apply for an exemption. All students must bring to the placement session either proof of a vaccine or proof of having been granted a waiver from Piedmont. Please note any student granted a flu vaccine waiver will be required to wear a mask at all times when on the Piedmont Athens Regional campus until March 31, 2019.
