New Volunteer Orientation & Training

Interested in finding out more about volunteer opportunities with Four Seasons? We offer New Volunteer Orientation sessions across western North Carolina ten times per year. Register today for an upcoming training by calling (828) 692-6178 or email

Unable to make a live session? No problem! We can offer video training from any connected device (computer, smartphone or tablet). Call or email us today to find out more.

What you’ll learn: In new volunteer orientation, you’ll find out about Four Seasons – who we are, where we serve, and how volunteers are impacting lives across WNC. You’ll also learn about how our services are paid for, and the ins-and-outs of hospice and palliative care. By the time we’re through, you’ll have a solid understanding of why Four Seasons is a leading provider of trusted care and how volunteers are integral to our mission.

Interested in working with patients and families? In addition to orientation, you’ll complete 8 hours of Patient & Family Support Training via video. This training is led by members of our clinical staff and will supply you with the confidence to work one-on-one with patients and bereaved family members.

Please note: Before becoming a volunteer, you’ll supply Four Seasons with two personal references and the consent to perform a criminal background check. Two-stage TB screening is also required for volunteers who work directly with our patients or in a facility.
