This year's CCMH Junior Volunteer program begins June 11, with orientation. The program is designed for teens ages 12-18 who are interested in giving back to the community, learning new skills, and possibly pursuing a career in the health care industry.
In 2012, the program enrolled nearly 50 teens with more than 1,850 volunteer hours. Volunteers are expected to spend at least three hours a week with the organization. They are assigned to work in many different departments such as Child Care, Environmental Services, Medical Records, Nutrition Services, and Pioneer Manor, among others. They also answer the phone for sports screenings and help with the Gift Shoppe Sidewalk Sale as well as sell popcorn to raise money for the Volunteer Services Scholarship Program, which provides two $500 scholarships each year.
The program concludes in August with an appreciation reception for the volunteers and their families. If you know of a teen who is interested in participating, have them contact Lacey Henningsen, CCMH Volunteer Coordinator, at 307.688.1536 or
Lacey.Henningsen@ccmh.net. Only 50 volunteers will be accepted, so please contact Lacey early.
