COVID-19 Vaccine Update: We are now offering walk-in appointments at the Wellness & Walk-In Care Center at the Garden State Plaza for those ages 12 and older who live, work, or go to school in NJ. We are also offering walk-ins at our Paramus Vaccination Center, but appointments are highly encouraged.
Volunteer Services Update
Valley is pleased to offer all-virtual volunteer opportunities for high school students! See below for details.
All in-person volunteer service continues to be temporarily suspended throughout Valley Health System. Please continue to check back for news and updates throughout the fall.
As always, our decision was guided by keeping everyone's safety and health in mind. Looking forward to when we can all be together again!
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.
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?
Students who wish to volunteer will need to complete an online application. Please note: While the Junior Volunteer Program no longer has deadlines, the application period will temporarily and briefly close throughout the year. During these times, the application will be unavailable. We appreciate your patience during these intervals. As a result, we cannot guarantee placements during a particular time of year (e.g. summer).
