Junior volunteer program at ETMC Tyler
From the hospital’s opening in 1951, young people have played a role as volunteers within ETMC Tyler. Today’s ETMC junior volunteer program is designed for high school students who wish to give back to the community and learn about the healthcare environment. Acceptance into the program is an honor, so teens must show commitment even in the application process.
Upon acceptance, a junior volunteer commits to six weeks of service through a placement within the hospital – either two four-hour shifts or one eight-hour shift per week. Each junior volunteer earns a minimum of 48 hours of service during the summer and is honored with a personalized certificate.
Our ETMC junior volunteers have a host of growth opportunities:
- Have opportunities to job shadow or tour selected hospital departments.
- Participate in the ETMC Leadership Academy, a series of programs that enhance life skills and prepare help prepare teens for the college and career world.
- Plan and participate in a fundraising project that will benefit a particular program of the hospital.
- Have fun and meet new friends!
Serving as an ETMC junior volunteer is a great way to pick up new skills, interact with others your age, gain community service hours for school and provide valuable service to the community. Applications are accepted each spring; more information will be posted on this site in February or you may contact the ETMC Tyler volunteer resources department for further information.
