Becoming a Junior Volunteer

PLEASE NOTE: We are no longer accepting applications for the Summer 2017 program. Please check back in February 2018 for information about next year’s program.

High School students between the ages of 15 and 17 and college students can volunteer during the academic year or the summer. A minimum commitment of one four - hour shift each week is required. We require students to volunteer for at least 40 hours during the school year and 50 hours during the summer. During the summer a volunteer must commit to being here at least 6 out of the 8 weeks to reach the 50 hours. These guidelines ensure that this will be a win-win experience for the students and the hospital staff.

The deadline for receiving applications for the 2017 Summer Junior Volunteer Program is Monday, April 3. Applications received after this date will be placed on a waiting list and applicants will be notified ONLY if there are open positions. Interviews are conducted during late April and early May. For those selected for the program, there will be an orientation during the last week of June and the program will begin after that. For those students in private schools whose summer vacation begins earlier, we will have earlier orientations to choose from.

All Junior applicants must be 15 years old by March prior to the Summer program.

The Summer Program is very competitive. Please be advised that applying to the program DOES NOT GUARANTEE an interview OR acceptance.
