Junior Volunteer Program

The Junior Volunteer Program offers high school youth ages 14-18 an opportunity to volunteer in a variety of areas throughout the Medical Center.  Junior Volunteers (JVs) provide valuable service to patients, families, and staff, while gaining experience and self-confidence for themselves. This popular program is great way for teens to spend the summer.
