CMH Encourages Students to Participate in Junior Volunteer Program
Citizens Memorial Hospital (CMH) is encouraging high school students to be a part of its summer Junior Volunteer Program. This program is for any student who is interested in a medical career or is even unsure of his or her future plans. The program instills in students the benefits of volunteering, exposes students to career opportunities in healthcare, and allows them to gain insight into successful, future CMH employees.
Students who apply must be age 15 by June 1, have a B+ GPA or higher, attend 8 hours of orientation on May 30, and volunteer at least 8 hours per week during the summer. Interested students must also complete an application, a health questionnaire, provide a reference from a school official, and be interviewed. Not every student who applies will be selected. CMH selects only the students serious about the volunteer program.
Students outside of Polk County are also welcome to apply if they have transportation to a CMH facility.
