VolunTeen Program

The VolunTeen Program is no longer accepting applications. Please check back in January 2018 for information about the 2018 Summer VolunTeen Program.

Make a difference in your community while having fun and exploring the healthcare environment at Northside Hospital Cherokee. Our summer program is designed to provide students interested in healthcare careers access to the operations of a world class hospital. Volunteering is a fun activity, with lots of hospital exposure. However, it’s also a serious commitment. VolunTeens provide hundreds of hours of valuable service to our patients, families and team members, and your department will depend on you for your assigned shift. Northside Cherokee offers volunteer opportunities in a variety of settings, included, but not limited to, customer service, clinical and non-clinical areas, patient transport and wayfinding. Please note that the teen program is competitive. We will offer 20 spots to the most qualified and enthusiastic teens. The selection process requires a 15 minute interview, which will occur in March. If you are selected for an interview, you will receive a formal email with the date, time and location of this interview.

The 2017 Summer VolunTeen Program Dates:
May 30, 2017 - July 28, 2017

Benefits of Volunteering

Please consider carefully whether volunteering will fit your schedule or other life commitments. You must have the willingness and ability to support your volunteer assignment.
