VolunTeen Program


The 2020 summer VolunTeen program is open to teens who will be 16 years old by June 1, 2020. The summer VolunTeen program offers high school students the opportunity to volunteer for a one week session at our diabetes camp or a two week session at either Children’s Hospital or the Donald M. Gally Summer Camp for patients of Children’s Hospital’s Rehabilitation Center.

Sorry, we are no longer accepting applications

References and parents/guardians will be contacted and all must respond by February 28, 2020 for an application to be considered. Submitting an application does not guarantee acceptance into our VolunTeen program.

All applicants must attend an informational meeting with a parent or guardian and must participate in a group interview. Parents/guardians will be asked to RSVP to an informational meeting once an application is received.

Teens accepted into the summer program will be scheduled in one of four two week sessions either 9 a.m. to noon or 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.. Teens scheduled for the diabetes or Rehab Camp will be informed of hours at a later date.

Teens who participated in the summer of 2019 do not need to complete an online application. Invitations to return for the summer of 2020 will be sent out to 2019 participants who successfully met all of the requirements of the program.
