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

St. 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 2, 2017. Because of the overwhelming response from our community teens we will again be offering two four week volunteer sessions this summer. Session one will begin on June 5, 2017 and will end on June 30.

Session two will begin on July 5, 2017 and will end on July 28.

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, space is limited and based on a first come, first apply basis. Deadline to apply to become a Teen Volunteer is May 27, 2017.

To apply to become a teen volunteer, please stop by the Marketing office at the Hospital to fill out an application or contact Melissa Richardson at [email protected].
