For High School Students
Volunteer jobs allow you to see up close what it’s like to work in a hospital, nursing care facility or health clinic — and many offer opportunities for volunteers starting at age 14 or 15. Depending on your age and interests, volunteer opportunities may include office duties, visiting with patients, helping them get around the hospital or volunteering in the hospital gift shop or kitchen.
No matter what you do as a volunteer, you’ll learn a lot about working in health care. Watch what’s going on around you and ask the people you meet what they do day-to-day and how they like their jobs. Visit Find Internship & Volunteer Openings to get started.
