Summer Youth Volunteer Program

June 19 – August 11, 2017

This volunteer program is designed for current high school students. 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. This is also a great opportunity for students to gain valuable interview experience in a professional setting, as well as meaningful work experience and professional references.

The Summer Youth Program has limited spaces, so we will be selecting our participants following face-to-face interviews with each applicant. Invitation-only, mandatory orientation and training will be on June 13. Selected participants will receive additional details following their interviews.

Students who are selected for the program will work a minimum of one four-hour shift per week for eight weeks, but participants may be approved to work multiple shifts per week. We will do our best to accommodate predetermined vacations, camps or sports, but participants must commit to all chosen shifts for the entire period of the program. It will also be expected that participants communicate any scheduling conflicts in advance.

We will celebrate a successful Summer Program with a wrap-up event on August 11. All participants who have worked a minimum of 24 hours in the Summer Youth Volunteer Program will receive a certificate of completion and a letter confirming their hours for use in college and scholarship applications.
