Memorial Medical Center’s junior volunteers are teenagers who contribute their time to support Memorial and enjoy a rewarding experience of community services.
Junior volunteers provide services Monday through Friday by admitting patients, discharging patients and making deliveries. Junior volunteers must be 14 to 18 years old and commit to providing one year or 100 hours of services. For information about the junior volunteers, call (209) 569-7350.
Benefits of Volunteering
"There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up." — John Andrew Holmes
Volunteering is a wonderful gift that can be given to patients and the community. Volunteers meet new people, make new friends, use their skills and acquire new ones. They feel a sense of accomplishment and perhaps the most important benefit is the satisfaction of knowing they are contributing to their community and making a difference.
