The purpose of the Volunteen program is to utilize our community teenagers ages 15 to 18 in a meaningful way by assisting in activities that benefit patients, families and community served by the Georgia Regents Health System and the Children’s Hospital of Georgia. The Volunteen program consists of three components; Summer Volunteens, Afterschool Volunteens, and the Volunteen Board.
The Summer Volunteen Program runs from June until the middle of July each summer. Teens selected to participate in this program through an interview process will have the opportunity to serve in one of a variety of departments throughout the health system. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend Lunch N’ Learns throughout the program and learn more about the medical field. Previous Lunch N’ Learn programs have included topics such as Ethics in the Field of Health Care, Electronic Medical Records, and The Path To A Nursing Career. Applications for the Summer Volunteen Program will be posted in February 2016.
The Afterschool Volunteen program runs from September until May similar to the academic calendar. Teens selected to participate in this program through an interview process will have the opportunity to serve in one of a variety of departments throughout the health system. The application period for the 2015-2016 Afterschool Volunteen program has ended. Please check back in February 2016 for the 2016 Summer Volunteen Program Application.
The Volunteen Board is comprised of a pool of teens who have participated in our annual Volunteen program the previous Summer. Teens will gain leadership and organizational skills while learning the value of serving their community. Previous service projects that the Volunteen Board has participated in include ringing the bell for the Salvation Army, serving at the Master’s Table, and throwing a birthday party for the children at the Hope House.
