Junior Volunteer Programs at Mary Immaculate Hospital
The 2020 Junior Volunteer Application is open.
Volunteering is a serious commitment of time and energy at the Junior Volunteer Program at Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital. Our program offers teens an opportunity to engage in a service project that is both rewarding and educational.
The Administration and staff of Mary Immaculate consider junior volunteers a valuable resource and an asset to our job of caring for the sick and suffering. For that reason, a Junior Volunteer at Mary Immaculate is expected to be the kind of person who has the desire to be of service to others, shows compassion for others, and shows patience in all situations.
