Our Junior Volunteer program gives young people the opportunity to explore careers in healthcare, as well as provide service to our hospital and patients.
Junior Volunteers have much to offer, and the program provides high school students the opportunity to learn new skills, develop new interests and make new friends. If you enjoy the satisfaction that comes from helping others and are interested in learning more about the healthcare field, you will enjoy being part of the Scott & White Junior Volunteer Explorer Program.
The Junior Volunteer Explorer Program is open to high school students who will be juniors or seniors in the fall of 2013. Students must be 16 - 18 years old to participate.
