We hope you consider participating in Cone Health’s teen volunteer program*, a great way to get hands-on experience in a hospital setting. As a volunteer, you will have the personal satisfaction of helping others.
Our ideal volunteer candidate is someone who genuinely wants to serve others and make a difference in the daily lives of our patients, visitors and staff. Every assignment completed by a volunteer supports our efforts to provide exemplary care. Our ideal volunteer knows that there are no small tasks when it comes to serving others.
