Health Care Serve & Learn Experience SALE program

    In addition to our regular college volunteer program, we offer the Health Care Serve & Learn Experience (SALE) program. SALE participants gain valuable experience by committing to volunteer at least six hours per week for an entire semester in one of our volunteer areas (72 service hours).  In return, you receive a one-to-one discussion with a professional such as:

    • physician
    • nurse
    • medical imaging technician
    • physical therapist, complete new volunteer shadow shift
    • occupational therapist
    • lab technician

    Space is limited, so apply early.

    It may be possible for SALE volunteers to earn college credit for this experience. It is each student's responsibility to coordinate all details with his/her college for college credit.
