Volunteering at NCH

Summer Program



Summer Program

NCH welcomes high school and college students during their summer break. It is a great time and opportunity to gain insight into a medical setting. Summer Program volunteering spans from mid May/early June until mid to end of August, approximately 8-10 weeks. Spots are limited and fill quickly. We recommend applying no later than mid-Spring, in order to be considered.

Basic Requirements

  • Must be 16 years of age or older.
  • Must volunteer a minimum of 4 hours per week, but more is recommended.
  • Volunteer a minimum of 40 hours within the 8-10 weeks of summer break.
  • All positions require students to be professional and mature, able to work with other volunteers and staff, and provide great customer service.

Application Timeline – If you are selected to be a volunteer after the interview, it will take 4-6 weeks to complete all necessary requirements before your first day. This time frame also depends on the length of time it takes a student to complete the Volunteer Orientation and to get their immunizations. This length of time is not part of the 8-10 weeks of required volunteering.
