Pennsylvania Hospital

The Summer Teen Volunteer Program has been cancelled. We look forward to seeing you next summer.

The Junior Volunteer program at Pennsylvania Hospital provides students who are at least 14 years old with career exposure to a variety of healthcare professions.

Each summer, the Volunteer Services Office at Pennsylvania Hospital offers the Student Ambassador Program for students (ages 14-17). Teens who participate in this summer program receive a behind-the-scenes look at health care careers. You will also have the opportunity to make new friends, learn new things, help others and have fun. The program targets high school students who may be interested in pursuing a career in health care, but all students are invited to apply.

Upon completion of the program you will receive a certificate and letter confirming your hours of service.
