Thank you for your interest in our Teen Volunteer Program at St. Joseph Regional Health Center in Bryan. Our teen program offers volunteer opportunities for youth age 14-17 years old. You must be 14 years old by June 13, 2016, in order to participate in our program.
Please read carefully: We are offering one 8-week session from June 15 – August 7. You are required to volunteer for, at least, one shift per week (shifts are 3 to 4 hours depending on assignment) and may not be absent for more than two weeks during the summer session. Shifts will be offered Monday – Saturday between 7 am and 6 pm.
All accepted applicants and returning Teen Volunteers are required to complete online orientation and attend one Orientation Check-in Session. Choose from:
Monday, June 13, 10 am – 11 am
Monday, June 13, 1 pm – 2 pm
We have a limited number of placements available. Many of you have busy summer schedules and you need to carefully consider whether a commitment to the hospital program will fit into your schedule.
