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 click here to submit your information form for our summer program by February 28th. Make sure to read the instructions on information form thoroughly, as there are 2 letters that must be submitted by 2/28, in addition to your information form in order to be considered for our program. Submit your form and letters described on the form for the summer program as early in February as you can! The application for our program will be posted in February 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 February.
Once you’ve applied, you will receive an email sometime in March or April providing feedback or additional steps. Please stay tuned in to your email for communications from our office.
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 at this time. During the fall and winter, our evening and weekend positions are very limited and will be filled by the existing teen volunteers. Stay tuned for updates on our website as this may change throughout the year or from one year to the next. But for now, if you are interested in volunteering this summer, please apply in February for our Summer Program.
