High School Applicants

 

Thank you for your interest in the Junior Volunteer program at The Valley Hospital!
The Spring application period is now closed.
 
Applications for Summer 2014 are now being accepted. The deadline to apply to the Junior Volunteer program for Summer 2014 is Friday, May 30, 2014. Applications received after the deadline will not be accepted and may be considered for a later application period.

To apply, students must:

  • Have already started high school (September or later)
  • Be at least 14 years of age

We do not review applications unless both of these requirements are met.

Junior volunteers are a vital part of our volunteer team and some of our most enthusiastic members. They perform clerical tasks, deliver flowers and newspapers, serve customers in Kurth Cottage Cafe, transport patients, and run errands. They help out at community events, such as disaster drills and health fairs for the public. They are the adult volunteers of tomorrow and the dedicated youth of today!
