GILLETTE, W.Y. - Campbell County Health's (CCMH) Summer Youth Volunteer Program begins June 9, 2011. Interested youth ages 12-17 years should contact Bridget Vanderpool, Volunteer Coordinator at 688-1536 by Friday, May 13 to complete an application and schedule an interview.

Interviews will conclude May 25th. Orientation and training takes place June 9. All interested youth volunteers, even those from previous years must complete an application and schedule an interview.
"Completing the application gives youth additional practice and the interview process allows me to meet the veteran volunteers", said Bridget.
The program has limited a limited number of slots available. Youth volunteers perform duties such as delivering meals, beverages and books, greeting patients and families, assisting nursing and support staff, working with children and Pioneer Manor residents and other healthcare related services.
"It's a great way for young people to learn the value of helping others," said Bridget Vanderpool. "And it's fun for the kids too."
