Summer Volunteer Program for Students
During the summer months, interested teens and college students have the opportunity to volunteer here at City Hospital at White Rock.

This program offers young people a great opportunity to learn more about healthcare professions and the importance of volunteerism and dedication to an organization — valuable skills in their future career endeavors.

We provide volunteer opportunities in three key areas including:
- Administrative: Volunteers who work in administrative areas assist in keeping their assigned departments organized. Duties may include filing, answering phones, and assembling informational packets.
- Patient Care: Volunteers help the clinical staff in various non-clinical ways to ensure patients receive the best possible care during their stay. Duties may include reading to patients, refreshing ice and water, and assisting with meals.
- Hospital Liaison: Volunteers who are assigned to hospital liaison duties assist in waiting rooms and information desks to ensure the needs of the patients and visitors are being met. If you are looking for something that requires you to sit, this would be a great area for you.
- Sew/Knit/Crochet Opportunities: If you knit, crochet, sew, or quilt, we are looking to start a program just for you. If you enjoy making items to donate to City Hospital, please let us know. Ideas include but are not limited to: beanie hats for our newborns and NICU babies, burp cloths, mittens for our babies so they don’t scratch themselves, and prayer shawls. Our only request is that they are new and come from a smoke- and animal-free home. Your skills are invaluable to those receiving your items. If interested in this, email email@example.com.
