High School Volunteer Programs
Summer volunteer teen program
Each summer Henry Ford Hospital provides high school students, 15 – 18 years old, with an opportunity to learn about the medical field by volunteering in a variety of areas in the hospital and clinic.
If you have applied for the summer 2018 teen volunteer program
Should you had applied for the teen summer program in February and March of 2018, your application is under review and we will be in contact by email if we feel that a volunteer opportunity is available for you this summer. Once you are contacted, you will be asked to complete a phone interview. After which we will make our final selections for our 2018 summer volunteer team. If you have applied because you NEED volunteer hours for a separate program requirement or for school, Henry Ford Hospital should not be your only volunteer option. Please explore other volunteer options in case we do not have placement available for you this summer. Finally we do require that you commitment to a 9 week commitment that requires one 4 hour shift per week; should you not be able to make this commitment we would ask you to look for other opportunities.
Forms will be accepted until the open allotment of positions is filled at which time the application will be closed. Due to the popularity of our summer program, please submit a form as soon as possible for an increased opportunity to be selected for the program. Positions are limited and not all prospective candidates will be selected.
If you have applied and/or have interviewed and are not selected
Please understand that a high volume of applications have been received and only so many positions are available, so we must select applicants based on several factors. Not everyone will be selected for an interview and not everyone who interviews will be selected. It is an honor to have our community serve as volunteers at Henry Ford Hospital, but we only have so many opportunities available based on our department requests and needs. It is our #1 goal to find the most suitable applicants to create excellent experiences for our patients and guests. Secondly, it is our goal to create an engaging, fulfilling, and memorable experience for our volunteers and staff and to fill all available summer rotation positions.
