Junior Volunteer Program, Students 15 to 18 years of age
About Our Junior Volunteer Program
Becoming a junior volunteer is both an honor and a privilege. The contributions of junior volunteers are invaluable to both the students and the hospital. Good Samaritan’s popular junior volunteer program is for qualified students between the ages of 15 and 18. Participating teens make a commitment to 50 hours or more over the course of the volunteer time period.
Junior volunteers are assigned to more than 15 different areas at the Medical Center. At the orientation, the volunteer will receive information on the job assignment, information on hospital policies, & be issued a Junior Volunteer uniform. Participation in special projects and events are also offered to junior volunteers throughout the year. Applicants will learn about open areas of service, and assignments. Schedules will be arranged based on interest and availability.
Every effort will be made to match each volunteer with the opportunity of his or her choosing. After school and weekend volunteer opportunities are available. Our Junior Volunteer Program is unable to accommodate summer-only positions. Program coordinators work carefully with committed junior volunteers to accommodate school and extracurricular activities.
