McLeod Dillon is sponsoring its 28th Annual Teenage Volunteer Program for Summer 2016. Volunteer youth will have the opportunity to work with healthcare professionals in many areas of the hospital.
“As young people are thinking about their life career choices, what better way to learn about the opportunities in healthcare than to see doctors, nurses, technologists and therapists in action? Teenage Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn and feel appreciated for their efforts,” said Candice Tyler, Teen Volunteer Coordinator.
Teenage Volunteers must be 14 to 18 years old with at least a B average in school, have their parent’s consent and encouragement, purchase a uniform, and volunteer at least 20 hours each month during the summer. The volunteer must also attend an orientation program at the hospital and have a health assessment (which is required for all hospital employees and volunteers) performed at the hospital at no cost. A current immunization record is also required.
Teenagers that are interested in participating should pick up an application at the Information Desk located in the hospital’s front lobby between May 9 and May 13 between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Applications must be completed and returned no later than May 26 at 4:00 p.m. No applications will be accepted after May 26.
For more information, please contact Candice Tyler at (843) 487-1293. The number of volunteers will be limited. A maximum of 20 teens will be selected this year based on academic merit, a letter of recommendation and essay submission. Former teen volunteers ARE NOT guaranteed acceptance.
