“The summer junior volunteer program provides a valuable opportunity for young people to a make a contribution to their community as well as to explore health care careers,” said Sherrie Parks, junior volunteer coordinator.

Junior volunteers work at least once a week for a minimum of 4 hours per day between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., interacting with staff, patient visitors, and other volunteers across numerous areas in the health system.

Oviya Justin, a junior at Texas High School in Texarkana, is excited to be part of the program for her second year. She will serve as editor-in-chief of the school newspaper and volunteers during her busy schedule, which includes painting, dance, and piano lessons.

“I find volunteering at the hospital and helping others to be very rewarding,” she said. “In addition, you receive great exposure to various health-related careers, and I encourage young people to volunteer as well.”

Approved applicants will be contacted to schedule an interview between May 6-17.

All accepted volunteers will be required to participate in orientation on Friday, May 31, and will be required to take a TB skin test to test for tuberculosis infection.
