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 bbaggett@health.southalabama.edu or egreen@health.southalabama.edu.
