Junior Volunteer Program
Every summer, our volunteer ranks swell as local high school students give back to their community through volunteerism at Shore Medical Center. This popular program provides a real-word introduction to the world of healthcare for area youth.
Junior Volunteers are placed in either patient care or non-patient care departments depending upon their area of interest. All teen volunteers must be at least 14 years old, and 16 years old to serve in patient care areas.
If you are a high school student looking to explore the diverse world of healthcare, Shore Medical Center’s Junior Volunteer program is for you. To kick start your volunteer experience at Shore, contact the Volunteer Office at 609-653-3543 for an application packet.
