Junior Volunteers can learn about healthcare 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 for an entire school year or summer program.
