2019 Junior Volunteer Class

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

The 2019 CMH Junior Volunteers include students from Fair Play, Walnut Grove, Bolivar and Skyline.

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 health care including local long-term care, rehab departments, outpatient surgery departments, medical/surgical nursing units, intensive care unit, obstetrics department, pediatric clinic and the emergency department.

“The best thing about this kind of a program is that it offers the students a chance to see what opportunities are available in health care,” says Jean Morrow, director of the Junior Volunteers Program.  “Another benefit is that they may be able to obtain scholarships for school in the future,” said Morrow.

CMH started the program in 2008 with 11 students. More than 100 students have participated in the program to date.

Applications for the Junior Volunteers program are accepted in April and May. Students must complete an interview process, be accepted into the program, attend a one-day orientation, and volunteer at least eight hours per week during the summer. 

For more information about the CMH Junior Volunteers program, contact Morrow at 417-328-6432.
