The Volunteen program is for teenagers, ages 14-18, who enjoy helping others and desire to learn more about health care and volunteerism. Volunteering is a great way for students to explore health care careers as well as earn the volunteer hours required for many college and scholarship applications.

Graduating high school seniors who have served at least 20 hours of volunteer service through the Volunteen program and who will be pursuing careers in health care may apply for the Auxiliary scholarships offered at the Brunswick and Camden campuses.
