Volunteering can be a great way to build work and people skills, have fun and meet new friends.
At Victoria Hospital we provide opportunities for youth ages 16 and 17 to volunteer with other youth on either Saturday’s or Sunday’s. Junior volunteer’s help with water delivery, meal tray delivery, newspaper and lab deliveries, and library cart. Typically the Junior’s work in teams of 2-3 volunteers.
If you are 16 or 17, we would be happy to talk to you about volunteer opportunities at Victoria.
