UCLA has trained 1000s of IMGs

They have a specific program to help IMGs get in.. Google it.
If you speak Spanish you have great chances.
I would stay away from volunteering its more like getting ice for patients and clerical work. Ask for an externship or even observership.

DocGulio is right volunteering is not considered as USCE. Its Externship>Observership>Research that program directors look for. Politely tell them that you are not interested, and ask for USCE.
