High School Student Volunteer Application

Thanks so much for your interest in volunteering at the University of Colorado Hospital!
Please know that we have temporarily suspended onboarding new volunteers due to visitor restrictions in the hospital. We are hopeful that we will be able to begin conducting virtual interviews for volunteers by the end of summer.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for UCHealth at University of Colorado Hospital. Volunteers play an important and meaningful role in providing care to patients and their loved ones. We hope you find your experience here to be valuable and worthwhile. 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, click What is the difference between the Summer Teen Program and High School Student volunteers?
