Junior volunteers

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

Our Junior Volunteer program is for youths aged 15 to 18. We offer flexible volunteer opportunities throughout the year - spring, summer, fall and winter. Volunteer and spend that time helping patients, families and friends at the hospital. You'll learn about health care and reap the benefits of volunteering.
