Teen Volunteers

A program of Northeast Georgia Health System Auxiliary.

Thank you for your interest in exploring volunteer opportunities. The Teen Volunteer program offers high school students a rewarding way to spend a portion of their summer and continue volunteering within the school year. Volunteering at one of the hospital campuses or within one of the long-term care facilities is a great opportunity for teens to explore healthcare careers while assisting with non-clinical volunteer duties in a variety of service areas. Teen Volunteers brighten lives and make such lasting impressions on the patients and families served.

Please be advised that Teen Volunteer applications are accepted in the month of February, and the placements are limited. The program is typically filled before the end of February.

Please carefully review the NGHS Volunteer Services Handbook
