Summer Volunteer Program

When does the information about the Summer Program become available?

We try to have information posted about the Summer Volunteer Program no later than late January each year.

How do I apply?

Your first step will be to attend a Volunteer Info Session, specific to the Summer Volunteer Program.  Watch for information on the Summer Volunteer Program page in January.

What is the youngest age you will accept?

The program is for ages thirteen through college senior.

How long is the summer program?

The program is six or eight weeks, depending on age.  Middle School and High School age participants volunteer for six weeks (June-July), College age volunteer for eight weeks (June-early Aug).

Is the commitment the same as the regular in-hospital program?

Yes… and no. The orientation process and training are similar but done on a predetermined schedule. Application deadlines, interviews, health testing etc. are all done throughout the Spring on a set schedule as well.  Participants volunteer two or four shifts per week depending on age, for two to four hours per shift during their program. Many share up to 100 hours of service during their shortened program
