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.

Youth Volunteer Program 2013-14 – Apply by September 23, 2013

Junior Volunteers develop relationships with residents and staff in The Views residential care and in the Transitional Care Unit (TCU) as they help with all kinds of activities. Candystripers help in the acute care areas of the hospital, providing patient comforts and staff support.

Our Youth Volunteer program is open to students in Grades 8 to 12, who serve one day per week. Shifts are after school during the week and in the afternoon on weekends.


Candystripers, acute care 4:00- 5:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday
Junior Volunteers, The Views 4:00- 5:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday
Junior Volunteers, TCU (Grade 10 and up) 4:00- 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and
2:00-4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday

We ask for a commitment to volunteer for the entire school year.

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

* Please note that we expect that influenza immunizations will be mandatory for all volunteers from December 2013-April 2014. Vaccinations will be available at St. Joe’s, and parental consent will be required.
