The AU VolunTeen Program gives local high school students the opportunity to contribute to the community while exploring a career in the medical field.
The program provides teenagers with practical experience and practice while developing good work habits. Rising high school juniors and seniors ages who are at least 16 years of age may apply. VolunTeen assignments are based on information provided by teens during the interview process and may include areas such as patient care units, outpatient units, the recovery room, office support assignments and more. Teens whose parents work at AU Medical Center will be assigned to separate areas to avoid placing parents in a supervisory role.
Applications for our Summer VolunTeen Program are now open! This year’s theme is World of Opportunity and will feature programs designed to develop leadership skills, demonstrate the advantages of networking, and offer professionally led career workshops that will mold participants into premier healthcare leaders.
Students who participate will receive a one-of-a-kind experience dedicated to learning the daily operations of a medical center through volunteer service. Every participant will begin and end with a willingness to make a difference in the lives of patients and families. If you aspire to be a world-class health professional, then our program will equip you with the tools you need to seize every opportunity that comes your way!
The AU VolunTeen Board is made up of teen volunteer leaders who have participated in our annual VolunTeen program the previous Summer.
Teens will gain leadership and organizational skills while learning the value of serving their community. During their board term, VolunTEENs will complete several community service projects such as Salvation Army Kettle Bell Ringing, Augusta University Pink Pumpkin Party, and the ICU Drive benefiting AU Health ICU areas.
