You are considered a teen volunteer if you are still enrolled in high school, or have just graduated but not yet started college.
Our program is a unique way for high school students to learn more about the healthcare environment, while helping the patients, families, and guests we serve.
In many cases, volunteers will be asked to involve the patient in educational activities or play a game. Other duties might include escorting a family to a location on the campus, helping restock supplies, checking in on a patient to see if he/she needs anything, or assisting families in the family center on each floor. We use a lot of coloring sheets and crayons around here, but you don’t have to be an artist…just a pal willing to help out.
Students must be 16 years of age or older when they make application to be considered for our program.
We do not offer a program that is summer only for Teens. The teen program runs all year, and we start teens every month but December.
If you have questions regarding the commitment, scheduling or anything else about our program, please contact me:
