We enjoy working with students and appreciate the opportunity to expose students to the healthcare sector. Volunteering in a medical center is unlike any other volunteer opportunity. Because we are a health system offering many health services, our customers expect professional healing, nurturing, caring, maturity and privacy – challenges that at times can be difficult.
Every summer, we select teenagers for the Junior Volunteer Program to volunteer in various areas of the medical center. Responsibilities vary.
