Junior Volunteer Program
Chris Buxton, Volunteer Services
Campbell County Health's Junior Volunteer Program offers young people
ages 13-18 an opportunity to learn new skills, give back to the community,
make new friends and have fun all at the same time.
Applications are available each May and up to 40 volunteers are accepted
into the program, which begins in June. Most volunteers end their service
as the new school year begins in the fall, while a few opt to volunteer
in the winter months.
Volunteers are expected to spend at least three hours a week with the organization.
They are assigned to work in many different departments including Child
Care, Environmental Services, Medical Records, Nutrition Services, and
The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Cetner among others. They also complete
special projects such sell popcorn as a way to make money for the CCH
Volunteer Services Scholarship program.
In 2014, more than 40 junior volunteers contributed 884 hours volunteering
10 weeks from June-August. In 2013, the program enrolled more than 45
teens who gave a total of 1,564 volunteer hours. In 2013, the program
enrolled nearly 50 teens and gave a total of 1,855.4 volunteer hours.
