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 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 two back-to-back shifts one day a week for the summer program.

All Junior Volunteers for the greater Winston-Salem area are processed through the Forsyth Medical Center Volunteer Office. Applicants can request to be placed at any greater Winston-Salem area Novant Health location.

Applications for the summer program are accepted between January 1 - February 23, 2018. Early or late submissions will not be accepted. To apply to be a Junior Volunteer for the summer program, please submit the online application located on Forsyth Medical Center’s volunteer page.
