Becoming a Teen Volunteer

Teen Volunteer Leadership and Internship Program


Teen Volunteer Leadership and Internship Program is an elite opportunity for a select group of teens. Teens will participate in several weeks of leadership customer service training prior to assuming team leader roles weekly at the front information desk. After successful completion of the program and completion of 100 hours of volunteer service, teens are eligible to intern in other areas of our facility. Graduating teens may be considered for our Auxiliary 501c3 Beverly Statter Junior Volunteer Scholarship.
