Summer Youth Volunteer Program

June 23 – August 29, 2014

This volunteer program is designed for high school students age 15 and up. The purpose of the program is to empower teens with leadership and communication skills and provide them with exposure to the hospital environment, while they contribute to the community.

Participants will work a minimum of one 4 hour shift per week for nine weeks. Two predetermined weeks will be allowed off for vacation, camps or sports. Participants may choose to work multiple shifts per week, but must commit to all chosen shifts for the entire period of the program.

Mandatory orientation and training will be on June 16, 1-4 p.m.

We will celebrate our successful participants at a Pizza Party on August 29. All participants who have worked a minimum of 28 hours in the Summer Youth Volunteer Program will receive a certificate of completion and a letter confirming their hours for use in scholarship applications.
