High School Volunteer Program

Closed: Summer High School Volunteer Recruitment
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us! Please review our Volunteer Program page for 2025 recruitment registration dates. Please note that due to the ongoing unpredictability of COVID-related challenges, we will be offering a condensed version of our regular high school volunteer program and, therefore, may have a limited number of openings available.


Summer 2024 Program Details

Our high school student volunteers are required to participate once a week for a three-to-four-hour shift in roles that are designed to enhance the health care experience for patients, their families, and visitors. The program will be eight weeks in duration, beginning Monday, July 8th, and ending Friday, August 30th

High school students who are interested in participating in this summer’s program will need to register for a general information appointment that will be made available via a Sign Up Genius link which will become available here, on our High School Volunteer Program web page, on Tuesday, May 7th at 9 a.m. No phone calls or walk-ins will be accepted. SPACE IS LIMITED—we anticipate these general information appointments will fill up quickly!!!

NOTE: An individual email address can only be used to sign up for one general information appointment. This means that if you are a parent/guardian planning to sign up on behalf of multiple high school students, you will need to provide a primary email address for each individual student.


IMPORTANT: Please review the Summer High School Volunteer Program policies and requirements outlined below prior to signing up for a general information appointment.

High School Summer Recruitment runs through May
