Teen Volunteers

For your safety and the safety of others, we have cancelled all of our 2020 Summer Teen Programs.  We look forward to offering these programs once again in 2021. 

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 exceptional care. Our ideal volunteer knows that there are no small tasks when it comes to serving others.
