Student Volunteer Process

Our student volunteer program is designed to introduce young adults (students age 15 through college) to the activities of a healthcare institution based on their individual interests and skills. 

Students considering medical careers can learn about our healthcare system and get a personal look at both the challenges and rewards of working in a healthcare organization. Volunteering provides valuable experience and references for school and employment.
Selected student volunteers must commit to one four hour shift Monday through Friday from 8am-4pm and provide a minimum of 30 hours of service during the summer months. Please be sure you are able to make this commitment before you apply. Discuss this commitment with your parent/guardian and evaluate your other obligations. It is important that volunteers are dependable and treat their assignments seriously.
