St. Vincent Salem Hospital is now taking applications for teen volunteers during summer.

teen-volunteers_2St. Vincent Salem Hospital’s teen volunteer program is designed to provide teens with experience in the healthcare field. This serves as an opportunity to gain experience in healthcare, develop job skills, take an active role in community service, meet new friends, develop new interests, and develop high self-esteem.

This opportunity is available to all students between the ages of 12 and 17 years of age. Teen volunteers will sign-up to work 4-hour shifts from 8:00a.m. – 12:00p.m., or 12:00p.m. – 4:00p.m.

Orientation to the program will be conducted at 10:00 a.m. on June 1, 2016. Because of the overwhelming response from our community teens we will again be offering two fourweek volunteer sessions this summer. Session one will begin on June 6, 2016 and will end on July 1st. Session two will begin on July 5, 2016 and will end on July 29th.

Teen volunteers can learn valuable job skills. Some of the job skills teen volunteers learn are customer service, appropriate dress for the workplace, the importance of a positive and helpful attitude, how and when to take initiative and managing increasing levels of responsibility.

Please note spaces are limited and are based on a first come first apply basis. Deadline to apply to become a Teen Volunteer is May 27, 2016. To apply to become a teen volunteer, please stop by the Human Resources office at the Hospital to fill out an application or contact Val Potter at
