Junior Volunteer Programs

Junior Volunteer Program at Capital HealthThe Junior Volunteer Summer Program offers a unique opportunity for teen volunteers to learn about having compassion for others while gaining experience supporting patients, families, and staff in a hospital setting. While we do not offer opportunities for volunteers to shadow medical staff or gain clinical experience, we do offer a number of exciting and rewarding assignments. In addition to the hospital setting, teen volunteers can also gain experience in retail business by being a part of our Thrift Store or gift shops and build their entrepreneurship skills.
