The Summer VolunJag program gives students the chance to experience the hospital environment firsthand while making a positive impact in the community. VolunJags not only learn service skills but also have the opportunity to maximize their potential through offered trainings, lunch and learn sessions, and networking opportunities. This is a worthwhile experience that is beneficial to anyone interested in pursuing a healthcare career.
The application period for our 2023 Summer VolunJag Program has ended. Our next VolunJag session will take place in the Fall.
We encourage you to complete our AU Health VolunJag Interest form. All interests will be contacted once the application opens in late July. For questions or additional program information, please contact our office at 706-721-3596 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The VolunJAGS College Volunteer program is divided into fall, spring, and summer semesters, enabling college students to volunteer within the medical center during a specific semester without worrying about changing their volunteer schedule every semester as their academic schedule changes.
Volunteers must be at least 17 years old and meet the following:
All participants are required to complete at least four volunteer hours per week during the semester.
Students actively enrolled at any college or university during the semester they wish to volunteer are eligible to apply.
Individuals planning on enrolling in a college or university during the semester they wish to volunteer are also eligible to apply.
Students that are able to serve for at least two consecutive semesters are eligible to apply.
The AU VolunJag Board is comprised of volunteers who showed exemplary leadership during our annual Summer VolunJag program.
Those chosen to be a part of the VolunJag Board, participate in acts of service not limited to the AU Medical Center and around the CSRA. During their board term, students are given leadership roles in community events and while participating in various initiatives. Some of our past projects have included partnering with organizations such as the Salvation Army Kettle Bell Ringing, AU Health ICU areas, the Augusta Dream Center, and CSRA Walk for Water.
