Volunteer at Englewood Health

Due to a high number of applications, we are no longer accepting applications for the summer 2024 High School Volunteer Program.

For students age 16 and older.

If you are at least 16 years old, you can be a high school volunteer.

High school volunteers fulfill many vital and important roles within the medical center. Examples include:

  • escorting patients
  • delivering flowers
  • running errands
  • special projects

Time Commitment and Hours

It is preferred that volunteers maintain a regular schedule. All high school volunteers (16 or older) are required to commit to the following work schedule:

  • School Year: A weekly commitment of 2 hours between September and June is expected. Assignments are available throughout the week, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. and on Saturdays, 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.; 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.; or 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Summer: A minimum of one, 3-hour shift a week between June 24 and August 16. In the summer, assignments are scheduled Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. or 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. and on Fridays, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. or 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. There are no weekend volunteer opportunities.
