High School Summer Program
The upcoming High School Summer Volunteer Program takes place from June through August each year and will require 60 hours of volunteer service. This 10-week commitment will include a volunteer assignment within our hospital setting, as well as one week of service at Camp Prov, a day camp in Everett for children who have special needs.
The Summer Program is a key component to Providence’s mission of caring for the poor and vulnerable. Additionally, we hope that this dynamic service-learning opportunity will allow the students to meet the following objectives:
- Increase their awareness of the healthcare field as a potential career path.
- Apply sound decision-making and problem-solving skills within their volunteer position while receiving supportive coaching and mentoring from staff.
- Practice key communication skills in a diverse environment made up of patients, family members, visitors and staff from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds.
We are confident that after completion of the High School Summer Program, students will feel a sense of accomplishment and pride in having achieved a goal while enriching the lives of our patients, visitors and staff.
Interested sophomores, juniors and seniors must visit our website during the open enrollment period starting February 26th – March 18th, 2016 to submit an interest form. Open recruitment for the HS Summer Program may end early depending on the number requests we receive. Applications will be provided to those students who meet the program requirements. We also welcome graduating seniors to call us about volunteering in our traditional volunteer program during the school year.
Notice: All acceptance and denial letters will be sent out on April 11, 2016.
