Carrie Brown, the coordinator of Student volunteering team expressed that the local hospital is an eternal part of their community. Further, he said that most of the volunteers have been born here and they have found a way to give back to their community through volunteering.

83 students from 11 area high schools take part in the hospital’s summer student volunteer program. Around 15 to 17 students are working on a daily basis in 25 different departments to give their service. Carrie Brown asserted that the volunteers work according to the needs of different departments. He said that the students make packets and folders for various departments of the medical center. In addition to this, many students help in the gift shop, cafeteria, and they do hospitality to deliver food to patients in various departments as per the need.

Volunteering is an excellent means to learn a foreign language as it gives an opportunity for participants to work with people from different cultures. You need to have skills of volunteering in Spanish if you wish to volunteer in countries where this is their native language. Many students have also taken part in volunteering work as they want to know different cultures as well as languages.

According to staff, the motive of the students in participation is to gain service hours, school credit and job training. Some student volunteers want to gain some experience in order to get a job at a store. On the other hand, many student volunteers are volunteering in the hospital in order to build their career in the medical field. Students want to learn valuable skills by playing different roles in different departments of the hospital.
