NMMC Seeks Teen Volunteers for Summer Program
TUPELO, Miss.—The Volunteer Services Department of North Mississippi Medical Center is seeking applications for its student volunteer program.
This program is designed for students who may be interested in pursuing a career in health care or who simply would like to make a difference in someone’s life. Eligible students must be 15 by June 1, 2019.
Two sessions will be offered this summer: May 27-June 21 (orientation on May 23) and July 1-26 (orientation on June 26).
Volunteer opportunities abound in many areas of NMMC, including nursing, rehabilitation services (physical, occupational and speech-language therapy), infusion services, short stay surgery and clerical areas. Baldwyn Nursing Facility and Pontotoc Wellness Center are also volunteer sites.
“The hospital’s summer volunteer program allows students to make a difference through their service to this community,” said Rhonda Weaver, NMMC Volunteer Services manager.
Applications are available at area school guidance offices or from the NMMC Volunteer Services Department. Students are also required to submit a cumulative grade report with their application. Application deadline is March 15.
Finalists will be interviewed and notified of selection. Students selected for the program will be assigned specific work hours and expected to keep their schedule with the exception of illness or vacation.
