Project C.U.R.E.

Office and Warehouse Volunteer

October 2018 - August 2019 • Tempe, AZ

What I liked

Project C.U.R.E.'s Arizona office and warehouse was a great volunteer experience. I liked how I had a variety of experiences, including donation accession in the warehouse, volunteer management in the office, and donation pickup from donor hospitals across the valley. This variety provided an opportunity to develop and learn a wide variety of skills. It feels good to be participating in an important work. While I did not have the opportunity to meet personally the individuals we impact, as all our donations go to international sites, it's possible to feel and see the difference we make when preparing enormous shipments of life-saving equipment for critical-need areas. I also appreciated that the pace of work is flexible. A range of abilities and capabilities are welcome, and with a good attitude, the work can be moved forward with the skillset you already have.

What I wish was different

Advice

My advice is to be flexible and to be willing to take initiative. The Arizona office and warehouse has limited full-time staff that's pulled in a lot of directions, so learning how to be independent and do good work on your own, or on your own with other volunteers or interns, is important to having a good experience and getting good work done.

Biomedical Intern

August 2017 • Phoenix, AZ

What I liked

The internship gives you a lot of experience working with biomedical equipment and understand what that equipment does.

What I wish was different

Honestly, nothing. I’ve had a great time in this internship.

Advice

Write down the devices you work with. You work with so many different ones, it’s hard to keep track of what you’ve tested. A lot of people are curious about it to, so it will help when having conversations.
