    Junior Volunteer Program

    Junior Volunteers provide valuable assistance to the hospital. Through the Junior Volunteer Program, young people can feel a sense of accomplishment while gaining work experience or exploring career options. Junior volunteers perform non-medical duties, assisting patients and hospital staff in ways such as:

    • Delivering materials to patients or between departments
    • Directing visitors throughout the facility
    • Answering visitor questions
    • Providing clerical/administrative assistance

    The program is offered to students at least 15 years of age who must commit to working a minimum of 100 hours within a school year. Two-hour shifts are available Monday through Friday from 2 to 7 p.m., and four-hour shifts are available on weekends and during the summer.
