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 AU Summer VolunTeen program is designed for rising high school juniors and seniors or those who are at least 16 years of age with an interest in healthcare. Students are given a unique opportunity to volunteer in our AU Health facilities and serve alongside medical professionals all while making a difference in the lives of patients, families, and staff. Participants who successfully complete the program can expect to gain valuable skillsets that will maximize their potential for future healthcare careers.
The application period for our 2023 Summer VolunTeen Program has ended. All those who are interested in joining our next Summer session may apply starting January 2024.
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.
