CCMH Summer Junior Volunteer Program Begins June 12

GILLETTE, W.Y.­­ — Campbell County Health's (CCMH) Junior Volunteer Program, begins June 12, 2013. Interested youth ages 12-17 years should contact Lacey Henningsen, Volunteer Coordinator at 688-1536 by Monday, June 3 to complete an application and schedule an interview. Applications are also available online at www.ccmh.net/volunteer.

Orientation and training takes place on June 11. All interested junior volunteers must complete an application and schedule an interview.

One purpose of the Junior Volunteer program is to allow young adults the opportunity to practice business skills in a non-threatening environment, such as participating in an interview.

The program has a limited number of slots available. Junior 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.

"Of course CCMH provides experiences and exposure to healthcare professions, but we also provide opportunities in business, childcare, management, marketing, and other facets of a typical business," said Volunteer Coordinator Lacey Henningsen.

Interested youth must be the minimum age of 12 by July 1, 2013, be able to volunteer at least three hours each week - excluding vacations, and have transportation to and from the hospital. Volunteer shirts/uniforms will be provided.

The Junior Volunteer program concludes August 2 and an appreciation reception is scheduled for August 6. For more information call the Volunteer Services office at 688.1536.
