United Hospital

Junior Volunteers

If you want to make an impact on your community or spend some time giving back to those who need help, United Hospital’s Volunteer Services could use your help.

Our Junior Volunteer program is for teens 14-18. We offer volunteer opportunities during each session of the school year — fall, winter, and spring. Attend one (or more) of our sessions and spend time helping patients, families, and friends at the hospital. You’ll learn about health care and reap the benefits of volunteering.

  • flexible scheduling.
