Due to COVID-19 precautions, our 2021 Summer Teen Volunteer Program has been canceled. Check back in early 2022 for information about next year’s program.
Each summer, the Cancer Institute Volunteer Services Office hosts the Summer Teen Volunteer Program. If you are between 16-18 years of age, you are welcome to apply for this annual program where you will get firsthand experience volunteering in a health care setting.
This is a great experience whether you are interested in a health care career or just want to make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.
Activities may include such things as shadowing nurses, pharmacists and physicians; touring pharmacy and research labs; and hands-on learning at the Simulation Center. Teen volunteers also bake cookies for patients and their families; distribute candy and snacks in the waiting rooms; and assist staff in the gift shop.
