Massachusetts General Hospital operates a Junior Volunteer Program for children ages 16 and 17 each year during July and August and in the fall (after school).
During the summer and fall, the Massachusetts General Hospital Volunteer Department offers a Junior Volunteer Program for 16- and 17-year-olds. The program is designed to provide those who qualify with an opportunity to give back to the community, while exposing them to both the values of volunteerism and the field of healthcare.
Junior volunteers work with Mass General staff and adult volunteers and have daily contact with patients and families in a variety of hospital settings. All junior volunteers are trained as patient escorts to help patients get to their doctor’s appointments or assist with escorting patients who are being discharged from the hospital.
This is a position that requires independence, maturity, flexibility, excellent people and communication skills and immediate problem solving.
