This program gives high school students 16-18 years old the opportunity to experience the joy of helping others throughout the year. Junior volunteers learn about healthcare by assisting staff, visitors, and patients with non-medical tasks. They perform many of the same duties as our adult volunteers.
To Qualify as a Junior Volunteer
We're looking for mature students who can make a reliable commitment of one 3-hour shift per week for one year. You must have reliable transportation, be able to follow directions, accept supervision, and work independently. We expect you to balance school and work with your volunteer responsibilities.
When interviewed, you'll pick one service area in which to volunteer. We attempt to make the best possible match based on an applicant’s interest and service area availability. We also offer retail opportunities in our gift shops and UVA Health Prince William Auxiliary Thrift Shop. All of our areas of service are considered patient care environments.
Before applying, see our volunteer service opportunities.
