VolunTeen Program - Summer 2018 Information

The Northside Forsyth VolunTeen program offers an excellent educational opportunity for high school teens, ages of 16-18, with an interest in healthcare. Our comprehensive six-week program allows students to experience the total healthcare environment through volunteer service. Each VolunTeen participant is trained and supervised by either a Northside Hospital Forsyth Auxiliary member or a hospital staff member, and assigned to one department. Teens volunteer one day each week for a 4-hour shift and may attend two Lunch and Learn events offered during the summer session. Participants that successfully complete the summer program, by receiving a satisfactory competency from their assigned department and attend at least one Lunch and Learn event, are invited to participate in our fall and spring programs. These students may reapply each year for the summer program as well.
