Yes. Our Youth Volunteer program is for high school students 16 and 17 years old.
We on-board Youth Volunteers three times per year; Summer, Fall and Winter. Applications are available on March 1st, August 1st, and November 1st. Youth volunteers, much like adults, are interviewed before starting their assignment. We are looking for students who have a sense of service to their community, can function in a complex healthcare environment independently and are able to follow instructions.
Youth volunteers must be able to interact well with patients of all ages and have a willingness to help. High school students volunteer after school (4:00 pm – 7:00 pm), on the weekend (8:00 am – 12:00 pm, 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm, 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm), or various times through the summer and school breaks. Minimally youth volunteers are required to come once per week for 3–4 hours. We also ask for a one-year minimum commitment to our program. To be considered students must complete the application and meet other general volunteer requirements, including online training, health testing, etc.
