Junior Volunteer PROGRAM
Health care volunteer opportunities for high school students
Enloe Medical Center's Junior Volunteer Program meets the needs of aspiring future health care professionals and helps prepare high school students for future careers by providing experience in the hospital environment. Our Junior Volunteer Program is designed to be an educational and enriching experience for local students. Benefits include leadership opportunities, skill training, letters of recommendation, leadership experience and Presidential Service Awards. Due to the scope and nature of the program, volunteer opportunities for students fill very quickly. Please make note of posted deadlines.
Students attend orientation in June and then train over the summer. Applicants must be available at least 6 weeks out of the summer to fulfill their training requirements. During the school year, Junior Volunteers are scheduled for a 2-hour weekly shift. Additionally, there are three mandatory meetings to attend. Junior Volunteers are required to commit to a total of 100 service hours.
In addition to helping their community, Junior Volunteers receive skills that are transferable to other job environments. For their 100 hours of yearly service, Junior Volunteers receive the Presidential Service Award. Graduating seniors are eligible to apply for the $1000 Junior Volunteer Scholarship award.
Thank you for your interest in applying to be an Enloe Junior Volunteer. The application period for the 2015-2016 service year is now closed. Please check back if you would like to apply for our Junior Volunteer program in the future.
High school students between the ages of 16 and 18 may apply to the Junior Volunteer Program. The Junior Volunteer program requires a 100-hour / full year commitment, from June to June. The number of students accepted into the program will vary each year based on available shifts and placements.
