The Junior Volunteer Program offers youth the invaluable opportunity to learn about multiple career paths and experience what it is like to work in a professional environment. Junior volunteers perform duties such as greeting patients and families, assisting nursing and support staff, working with children and The Legacy residents, and other healthcare related services. They also help in the CCMH Gift Shoppe or The Legacy Country Store and at the Information Desk, as well as sell popcorn to raise money for the Volunteer Services Scholarship Program, which provides two $1,000 scholarships each year to high school students.
The Junior Volunteer Program begins Wednesday, June 5 and runs through Wednesday, August 7. For more information, call Volunteer Services at 307-688-1536. Learn more at www.cchwyo.org/volunteer.
