The Junior Volunteer program at HSHS St. Francis Hospital will offer service opportunities for area teens this summer.

Each applicant must be a high school student maintaining at least a C average; a minimum of 14 years of age by June 1; and willing to volunteer at least two hours per week during the summer program. Junior volunteers will perform a variety of duties in various hospital departments.

Registration will be held from 4-6 p.m., Wednesday, May 3, in the hospital lobby. A parent or guardian should accompany the volunteer to registration to assist with completing forms, confirm available work times and sign a written consent and a statement of good health. Those unable to attend the session must contact the hospital at (217) 324-8678 for registration forms.

For the safety of hospital patients, colleagues and volunteers, students will be required to present proof of immunizations for MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) and Varicella (chicken pox).

Each junior volunteer will need to purchase a shirt at a cost of $16. Those who still have their shirts from previous years’ programs may use those.

Mandatory hospital orientation will be held from 4-6 p.m., Wednesday, May 24. Attendance at orientation is required in order to participate in the program.

A limited number of positions will be available. For more information, contact Melissa Leonard at (217) 324-8678.
