Junior volunteers

Please note: Our junior volunteer program for summer 2016 is now full. The interview schedule for summer 2017 will be posted in January 2017. Thank you for your interest.

Would you like a rewarding summer experience as a volunteer in a busy medical center? If you are 15 to 18 years of age and are interested in serving and helping others within a hospital, the Junior Volunteer Program is a wonderful program to consider. Compassion for others, kindness and willingness to serve others are three important cornerstones of this program.

Junior volunteers provide service to patients and families at Duke University Hospital. Roles for Junior volunteers range from providing directions to patients and families, serving in the gift shops and helping ease wait times for families in waiting areas by providing a friendly, warm and welcoming presence.
