Youth Invited to Volunteer This Summer and Learn about Health Care Careers

Mar 07, 2014 No Comments by

HANFORD/REEDLEY/SELMA – Adventist Health is launching an innovative program focusing on volunteer service and career development for high school and college age youth this summer.

Discover Health Care Volunteers, which will run from June through August, is designed to expose youths to health care careers. Registration for the program is now open, and the deadline is March 24.

“We feel it is important to engage our youth in a positive way and help them discover what a great career health care can be,” said Tanya Hutchison, Volunteer Resources director. “Our employees will be great mentors for our youth.”

The Discover Health Care Volunteers, who will be at the four Adventist Health hospitals in Hanford, Reedley and Selma, will be asked to volunteer for 100 hours during the summer and attend an orientation session, four Career Core sessions and a graduation ceremony.

The four career core sessions are Physicians, Nursing, Additional Health Care Careers and Presenting Yourself. The sessions will introduce the young volunteers to the requirements of entering a health care profession and qualities that will make them successful. They will also have the opportunity to meet and ask questions of people working in health care.

“We encourage youths to apply if they have the desire to serve others in health care,” said Volunteer Resources Assistant Director Clay Ipsen.

Information on registration, selection qualifications and other topics may be found in the Volunteers section on the Adventist Health / Central Valley Network website.
