GILLETTE, WY—Applications for Campbell County Health's 2015 Junior Volunteer Program are now available. The program is designed for teens ages 13-18 who are interested in giving back to the community, learning new skills, and possibly pursuing a career in the health care industry. Up to 45 junior volunteers are accepted into the program, which begins in June.
The Junior Volunteer Program offers youth the invaluable opportunity to learn about multiple career paths and experience what it is like to work in a professional environment. Volunteers are expected to spend at least three hours a week with the organization. Junior volunteers perform duties like greeting patients and families, assisting nursing and support staff, working with children and Pioneer Manor residents, and other healthcare related services. They also answer the phone for sports screenings and help with the Gift Shoppe Sidewalk Sale as well as sell popcorn to raise money for the Volunteer Services Scholarship Program, which provides two $1,000 scholarships each year.
In 2014, more than 40 junior volunteers contributed 884 hours volunteering 10 weeks from June-August.
Interested youth between the ages of 13-18 years old should pick up applications at the Information Desk in the main lobby of Campbell County Health, 501 S. Burma Ave., or download at www.cchwyo.org/jrvol. The application is due Friday, May 15. Please return applications to:
