Thirteen local students are doing that by taking time out of their summer to participate in the Citizens Memorial Hospital and Citizens Memorial Health Care Foundation Junior Volunteer program.

The 2016 CMH Junior Volunteers include Morgan Hardin, Sarah Drak, Drew Mauck, Kenzie Harris, Anastasha Voris, Claire Ankrom, Laci Lindsey, Anna Bandy, Amanda Foster, Hannah Shrauger, Violet Harvey, Allison Baker, and Anshul Soni.

The CMH Auxiliary hosts the Junior Volunteer program annually for teens that are at least 15 years old and maintain a B+ or higher GPA.  The session starts in June and runs through August.  Junior Volunteers have many opportunities to work in various aspects of healthcare including guest relations, tech assistants in pediatric and adult rehabilitation, nursing units, employee pharmacy, the Heart Institute, outpatient surgery, emergency room, several specialty clinics, activities assistants at Butterfield Residential Care Center and long-term care facilities, tech assistants in physician offices as well as many other health-related activities.

“I am extremely excited with the enthusiasm and quality of the students in our group of Junior Volunteers.,” says Jean Morrow, director of the Junior Volunteers Program.  CMH started the program in 2008 with 11 students; 73 students have participated in the program to date contributing more than 3,800 volunteer hours. 

“The students receive great learning opportunities,” said Morrow. “They also have the chance to prove the type of future employee they will be, and if they are interested in applying for medical school, this experience could provide a recommendation for that application,” said Morrow.

Applications for the Junior Volunteers program are accepted in April and May.  Students must complete an interview process, be accepted into the program, and attend a one-day orientation.
