Leadership Opportunity Details
Become a mentor to young children in the hospitals long-term and keep them engaged and happy.
Students will commit to at least one full academic year as a volunteer in the program. Priority will be given to Sophomores and Juniors who are willing to stay with the program for 2+ years. ● As students will be working with long-term patients, they must commit to a minimum of 3 hours/week in the hospital. Excessive absences may lead to dismissal from the program. Students are expected to value this opportunity and make it a top priority in their college years. ● Students should be flexible, dependable, and have the ability to remain calm in high intensity situations. Students should be prepared to cope with emotionally tasking events, as they will be working with children with life-threatening illnesses. ● Selected students will be required to participate in StudentsCare's mandatory training session, monthly volunteer meetings, and complete all hospital volunteer requirements. There will be a one-time $30 on-boarding fee for StudentsCare, in addition to any hospital requirements. Students will be required to submit weekly volunteer logs in a timely manner.
