Youth Volunteers

Youth volunteers are very important members of our St. Joseph's Hospital community. Patients, residents and staff all look forward to the injection of energy and optimism that they bring. In their distinctive red t-shirts, they can be seen throughout the hospital. The 2013-14 program has wrapped up for the term.

Summer Junior Volunteer Program – Apply by June 20, 2014!

We are looking forward to our Summer Junior Volunteer Program in The Views complex residential care and in the Transitional Care Unit (TCU). Applications are now being accepted!

Junior Volunteers develop relationships with residents and staff in The Views and in TCU as they help with all kinds of activities.

The Summer Junior Volunteer program is open to students who will start Grade 8-12 in the fall. Most Junior Volunteers serve one day per week, Monday to Friday for July and August, although some students come twice weekly. Shifts are from 10:00-12:00 in The Views and from 2:00-4:00 in The Views and TCU. Of course, family holidays can be accommodated.

There is very high demand for this program, so if you want to join us, act quickly.
