LIMA – Applications are now available for St. Rita’s Health Partners 2016 Volunteen Program. Volunteens are high school students between 14–18 years old who volunteer a minimum of 40 hours over the summer to assist in a variety of needs in St. Rita’s medical facilities. The program offers an opportunity to preview careers in the healthcare field.

Volunteens could perform a variety of services during their time at St. Rita’s, including: research projects, patient transport, clerical/administrative duties, stocking supplies, grounds keeping, creative projects, and much more. Volunteens will gain work experience and educational opportunities (tours and hands-on learning). Participating in the program also helps to enhance college and scholarship applications and help teens with making career decisions in the future.

The application can be found online at stritas.org > Employment > Volunteering > 2016 Summer Volunteen Application Packet (direct link here). Applications will be accepted until March 11, 2016.
