Junior Volunteer Summer Program

Duke Raleigh Hospital

The Junior Volunteer Summer Program provides high school students, ages 14 to 17, the opportunity to experience a variety of activities in a hospital setting. As they assist and comfort our patients and visitors, junior volunteers learn valuable lessons that they will use throughout their adult lives. This program is only offered during the summer months.

  • The ten-week program begins on June 17, 2019, and concludes on August 23, 2019.
  • Each junior volunteer must commit to a minimum of eight weeks and volunteer at least eight hours a week.
