GAINESVILLE, TX – North Texas Medical Center is bringing back the Junior Volunteer Program this summer after a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19.
“It’s exciting to be able to welcome junior volunteers back into our hospital for the first time since 2019,” NTMC Marketing Director Darin Allred said. “This is a wonderful program for both the hospital and students who might be interested in a career in healthcare. It will truly give them an overview of all facets of the hospital while earning community service hours at the same time.”
The program is for students ages 16-19 who might be interested in a career in a health-related field. It is open to youth in both Cooke and Montague counties. The program will run July 11-22. Volunteers will work 32 hours over the two-week period, typically from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays. This will include both volunteer work and observation.
Volunteers will gain experience in a variety of hospital departments. They will be able to interact with doctors, nurses, hospital staff, patients and families.
An application for the Junior Volunteer Program can be found below. Applications are due by May 20. There will be a mandatory orientation on July 6. A $25 fee is charged to pay for a red polo shirt that each volunteer will wear.
Due to OSHA regulations, all volunteers at the hospital must be vaccinated for Covid-19.
