Volunteer Information for ages 14-17

Thank you for your interest in our Volunteen program. Volunteering in a hospital is a very rewarding experience. In addition to the satisfaction you receive from helping others, you may also gain insights into the medical field as a possible profession. Not all Volunteen assignments involve direct contact with the patients, yet each and every assignment is important to the everyday tasks that need to be accomplished.

To be a Volunteen you must:

  1. Be 14-17 years old.
  2. Complete the application and have one of your parents sign the parental permission form.
  3. Have the personal reference form completed, one by a teacher, counselor, or clergy person, and the other reference must be over 18 years old and not a member of your immediate family. If you are applying during the summer, the reference could be someone you work for or someone who has known you for awhile.
  4. Have an interview with the Volunteer Services Coordinator.
  5. Purchase a uniform from the Volunteer Office.
  6. Attend appropriate orientation and training session.
  7. Accept your assignment in good faith. We ask for a minimum 50-hour commitment. Volunteering is rewarding, but it is work.
  8. Necessary health requirements.

At the orientation, you will receive a Volunteer Manual which details in writing everything presented in the training. It is mandatory that you attend an orientation session before you are eligible for placement.

Please complete the application and return it to the Volunteer Office along with parental permission.

Along with the requirements outlined above, a background investigation may be performed depending on your volunteer assignment.

If you should have any questions prior to our interview, please call 433-3632.

Thank you once again, and we are looking forward to meeting you soon.
