Almonte General Hospital Junior Volunteer Program

Are you looking to gain experience in the healthcare field and to complete community service hours this summer?  The Junior Volunteer Program at the Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor is currently recruiting students who will be graduating grade 8 or who are in high school.

The program provides an incredible opportunity for students to work with a number of health care professionals.  The program allows high school students to gain work experience and accumulate their community service hours by assisting staff in many areas.  The residents, clients, and patients of the hospital and manor benefit from their interactions with the younger generation, and vice versa.  Junior volunteers are students in and around the Almonte area who have graduated from grade 8 or who are currently in high school.

The Junior Volunteer Program runs at the Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor from dates to be determined.  The volunteers will have opportunities in areas such as Physiotherapy, Day Hospital, the Medical/Surgical Unit, the Obstetrics Unit, Rosamond wing, Fairview Manor Recreation, Administration, Hairdressing, and Volunteer Services.  They will work one week, Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, with four different positions available weekly to choose from.  General training is provided to all of the volunteers as well as specific training for individual roles.  The Student Volunteer Leader for the Junior Volunteer Program is Jillian Larkin.

Junior Volunteers will gain valuable skills, knowledge and experiences that are transferable to future endeavours.  They will leave with an appreciation for those in the health care system and a sense of accomplishment.  On completion of the program, students will receive a certificate, a letter of reference, and verification that they have completed hours of community service.
