The departments that have positions for High School students as volunteers need teens with daytime weekday availability. After-hours and weekends may be available after a teen has demonstrated responsibility and reliability. Please note, this is different than applying for the UCHealth Summer Teen Volunteer Program. The application for that program will be available beginning in mid-February through first week in April for the following summer session. For more information on the differences between the programs, clink What is the difference between the Summer Teen Program and High School Student volunteers?
