Teens make our hospital a brighter place. Teens are welcome to volunteer in any of our teen friendly roles. To volunteer, teens must show proof of a 3.0 or better G.P.A., and have a recommendation from a teacher, coach or other advisor. Teens who are committed to serving on a regular basis and have successfully completed 6 months may be eligible to serve in areas throughout the hospital.
Teens (ages 14 through high school seniors) start out in one of the following roles:
- Kids Connection
- Ronald McDonald Room
- Waiting Room Rounding
- Wayfinding/Red Coats
Train hard, work hard and earn a scholarship upon high school graduation.
Teen volunteers who want to grow their leadership skills are encouraged to apply to our Teen Leaders Program. The Teen Leadership Program is an elite opportunity for a select group of teens. Teens will participate in 5 weeks of leadership training prior to beginning weekly volunteer shifts at the Welcome Center or Ronald McDonald House.
Throughout the program, teens participate in enrichment opportunities and can volunteer at hospital events. After successful completion of the program, teens are eligible to volunteer in many different areas of the hospital. Graduating teens earn college scholarships and a recommendation letter.
