Teenage volunteers at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital give of themselves to help others in many areas of the hospital.
How does a teen volunteer serve? In many ways, teen volunteers help out in the departments of the hospital wherever helping hands are needed. A teen volunteer receives careful preparation for the job – an interview, orientation and on-the-job training. Volunteers are assigned tasks for which they are specifically trained. Each volunteer works the hours they schedule with hospital personnel. Once volunteers make the commitment to follow a set schedule, they are expected to adhere to that schedule.
