SAMU’s Volunteer Incentive Program

Why volunteer for SAMU? What’s in it for you?

At SAMU you’ll be appreciated and rewarded for your hard work volunteering. We never take our volunteers for granted. Without you, we couldn’t do what we do.

Volunteering teaches you about your strengths and weaknesses, what you like and don’t like and what type of work environments or careers might suit you best. If you want to gain some valuable insight, volunteering is a great way to go about it. It’s a great way to test out a new career or program before diving in.

If this isn’t enough to inspire you, SAMU provides plenty of rewards for volunteering. The volunteers have a Volunteer Holiday and a Year-End Party. SAMU also offers an Incentive Program (VIP) to reward volunteers for their commitment to the SAMU team with a variety of items including branded SAMU Volunteer items, Gift Cards, Training Opportunities and Charity Donations. Based on the hours committed to SAMU, volunteer will earn points within VolunteerHub and will reach reward levels that entitle them to these rewards.
