Junior volunteers

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

Our Junior Volunteer program is for teens 15-18. We offer volunteer opportunities throughout the year based on semester sessions; spring, summer, fall, winter. Volunteer one or more semesters and spend time helping patients, families, and friends at the hospital. You’ll learn about health care and reap the benefits of volunteering.
