Thank you for your interest in the Junior Volunteer Program at UT Health Northeast. We appreciate the skill sets that our volunteers bring to our organization. People from all over the region and all walks of life join us to help make Northeast Texas a healthier community. The greatest rewards come from the heart and you can make a difference in someone’s life by starting with these three easy steps:
1. Complete the application below by May 7, 2017. Once the application is submitted, we will evaluate your application and interest. You will be notified of your acceptance into the summer program via an email, which will also include additional forms to be completed.
2. Participants will be required to attend a mandatory orientation and training session before volunteering. Orientations will be held on June 14th (for the volunteer session from June 19th through July 7th) OR on June 28th (for the volunteer session from July 10th through July 28th). The orientation will introduce you to the hospital and give you an overview of essential topics for all hospital workers including confidentiality, infection control, safety issues, HIPAA, and general compliance training.
3. Volunteers will be expected to serve at least one full day per week, from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m during either the first (June 19th through July 7th) OR second (July 10th through July 28th) sessions.
4. Upon acceptance you will be required to complete a background check and TB (tuberculosis) screening. This test will be administered here at the hospital free of charge and a parent or guardian must be present. Screenings from other healthcare facilities will not be accepted.
We look forward to receiving your application by May 7, 2017. If you have any questions, please contact Stacy Van Leer, Manager of Volunteer Services by calling (903) 877-5520 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
