Junior Volunteers

Our Junior Volunteer Program offers an opportunity for teens, ages 14 to 18 (must have completed the 8th grade – just graduated from high school), to serve after school and during the summer. Our teen volunteers are trained and supervised by a Volunteer Coordinator and they perform many of the same duties as adult volunteers. Junior Volunteers can learn about health care by assisting staff, visitors and patients with non-medical tasks. Junior Volunteers must be able to follow directions, accept supervision and work independently. We are looking for mature students who can make a reliable commitment of one shift per week during the school year for at least an entire semester or two back-to-back shifts one day a week for the summer program.
