St. Vincent Salem Hospital is now taking applications for teen volunteers during summer break. St. Vincent Salem Hospital’s teen volunteer program is designed to provide teens with experience in the healthcare field. This serves as an opportunity to gain experience in healthcare, develop job skills, take an active role in community service, meet new friends, develop new interests, and develop high self-esteem.
This opportunity is available to all students between the ages of 12 and 18 years of age. Teen volunteers will sign-up to work 4-hour shifts from 8:00a.m. to 12:00p.m. or 12:00p.m. to 4:00p.m. Orientation to the program will be conducted at 10:00 a.m. on May 29, 2013. Because of the overwhelming response from our community teens, we will again be offering two four week volunteer sessions this summer. Session one will begin on June 3, 2013 and will end on June 28th. Session two will begin on July 1, 2013 and will end on July 26th.
Teen volunteers can learn valuable job skills. Some of the job skills teen volunteers learn are customer service, appropriate dress for the workplace, the importance of a positive and helpful attitude, how and when to take initiative and managing increasing levels of responsibility.
