Teen Volunteers

The 2021 Volunteen Program has been filled. We have reached our capacity with requests for applications.

Applications Open: March 1, 2021

The Volunteen Program is a great year-round learning opportunity for mature, responsible young people. Exceptional teens, ages 15 through graduating seniors, energize Driscoll Children’s Hospital all day during the summer and throughout the school year on evenings and weekends.

To accommodate teens for this program during COVID-19, 2021 will focus on year-round teen availability and will have a rolling acceptance throughout the summer months. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our Volunteen Program will limit the number of service areas available for teens.
