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

Volunteer Requirements

In addition to meeting the general requirements of all volunteers at Valley, high school volunteers must:

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

Junior Volunteer Assignments

Once we receive your application, you will be invited, via email, to an orientation in accordance with when your application was received (this may take 4-6 weeks). You may be placed on a waitlist if assignments aren't available at the time you apply.

Assignments are based on age, individual interests, skills and the needs of Valley Health System. Morning, afternoon, evening and weekend positions are available. 

Please be advised that we do not offer shadowing opportunities to high school-age volunteers or interns. You must be a rising third- or fourth-year college student focused on a medical career to be eligible to shadow.

Ready to Volunteer?

The junior volunteer application period is now ongoing; we no longer have seasonal application periods or deadlines. As a result, we cannot guarantee placements during a particular time of year (e.g. summer). Visit the "Apply to Volunteer" page for more information.
