Student Volunteer Program
Aria Health has a number of challenging volunteer opportunities for students age 16 and older. We offer a 6-week Summer Volunteer Program and a year round program as well. Many of our students have such a rewarding experience during our summer program that they continue volunteering their time throughout the school year.
As a volunteer you will have opportunities to serve our patients in several ways. There are many different assignments offered to students in several departments of the hospital.
A volunteer's service is important in helping Aria Health carry out our commitment of service to our patients and the community we serve.
Participation in the Student Volunteer Program will give the student opportunities for training in community service and to observe careers in the hospital healthcare arena.
Volunteers serve without pay and are responsible for their own transportation and to purchase their uniforms. A volunteer is expected to be reliable and regular in attendance.
- Must be 16 years of age or older.
- Must be able to work a regular weekly assignment
- Must have two school references completed by an adult teacher
- Must meet medical immunization and background check requirements
All students accepted for the Student Volunteer Program are required to attend an Orientation Session. After Orientation, there will be on-the-job training. Staff and experienced volunteers will participate in the training process.
The dress code is outlined in the Student Handbook, which the student shall receive at Orientation.
An ID Badge will be issued at the Orientation Session and must be worn at all times while in the hospital.
Please feel free to contact our Department Secretary for additional information at 215-612-4170.
Thank you for considering Aria Health for providing your volunteer service.
