Smiles and good cheer abounded this week when the 62nd class of Distinguished Young Women visited USA Health Children’s & Women’s Hospital to meet young patients.
What it Means to Volunteer at University Hospital
As a volunteer at USA Health University Hospital, you help to comfort and tend to patients of all ages. There are a variety of ways you can contribute to the healing process of our patients.
Applicants chosen to volunteer at University Hospital must also go through an orientation, take a tuberculosis (TB) skin test, be current on vaccinations for the flu as well as mumps, measles and rubella (MMR). They must also agree to a background check conducted by USA Health.
Ways to Volunteer
Volunteers at University Hospital can support our patients and their families by working in patient units, the hospital gift shop or the information desk. Typical commitments last six months, for three to four hours per week. Applicants must be ages 15–18 or older. For more detailed information, please contact us by phone at (251) 471-7265 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers are required to wear uniform tops, which are provided. To apply, you will be asked to submit an application, attend orientation, agree to a reference and background check, as well as go through interview and training sessions.
Teen Volunteer Program
Volunteering with University Hospital as a teen will be a valuable personal growth experience as well as a wonderful way to support and invest in the community in which you live.
Teen volunteers must be 15 years of age and have completed their freshman year of high school. Assignments are typically four hours long, during the day Monday-Friday. There are no evening shifts. Summer sessions are short, so we ask that absences be kept to a minimum during this time. Please notify the Department of Volunteer Services at the beginning of the summer if you must miss a week. Teen volunteers are required to wear uniform tops, which are provided.
For more detailed information about the Teen Volunteer Program, please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all other inquiries, please call (251) 471-7265. Please find the application for teen volunteering below. Application deadline date is March 15, 2019.
