Summer Teen Volunteering Program (ages 15-17 only)
Summer volunteer teen program
Each summer Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital and our surrounding medical centers provide high school students, 15 – 17 years old, with an opportunity to learn about the medical field by volunteering in a variety of areas in the hospital and clinics. Please visit our site again in January 2018 for summer 2018 teen volunteer opportunities. Apply for the summer program as early in January as you can! The application for our program will be posted in January and taken down as soon as we have received a certain volume of candidates. There is no guarantee that the application will remain posted past January. Once you’ve applied, you will receive an email sometime in February or March providing feedback or additional steps.
If you have applied and/or have interviewed and are not selected
Please understand that a high volume of applications are received for our summer program 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 West Bloomfield Hospital and our surrounding medical centers, 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.
Fall & Winter seasons
Volunteer opportunities are not available for new high school candidates during the fall and winter seasons. During the fall and winter, our evening and weekend positions are very limited and will be filled by the existing teen volunteers. Please visit our site again in January 2018 for summer 2018 teen volunteer opportunities.
