High school volunteer program

This program invites local teens to experience the world of health care as junior volunteers. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to cancel our 2020 Summer Only Youth Program. We will monitor the situation and restart our junior volunteer program when it is safe to do so.

Who can apply: This program is open to high school students between the ages of 14 and 18. (You must be 14 by by June 15.) You also must meet the requirements of the application process, including being in good academic standing and having parental consent. You will also be required to attend the mandatory orientation.

Application period: Our application window opens March 1, 2021, with a deadline of May 1, 2021 to submit all materials.
