High School Volunteer Program
This unique program is for teens who are at least 14 years of age and in
9th, 10th, or 11th grade at the time of orientation. The High School Volunteer
Program requires a commitment to volunteering for a full one year of service
with either a weekly 2 hour assigned shift during the weekdays or a 4
hour assigned shift on alternating weekends in our Escort Services department.
Please note: the last opportunity to apply to the program is to apply for
the spring orientation (usually held in February or March) of your 11th
grade year. Please refer to the website for dates for submittal of pre-application. We do not accept applications from students in 12th grade.
How Do I Become A High School Student Volunteer

for you, view the
High School Student Volunteer Program Information Sheet.
The application process for the high school volunteer program is currently
being modified. Please check our website in early December, 2015 for specific
information on how to apply to the program. We will be holding a Spring
2016 orientation and dates are pending at this time.
Important notes: 1) Based on past experience we expect to receive significantly more applications
than we can accommodate at orientation. 2) In fairness to other families,
we accept one application per household per orientation.
Fall Orientation Application Process
The Fall Orientation process is now closed. Please check our website in
December, 2015 for information regarding our Spring 2016 Orientation process.
There are no summer, short-term, episodic, hands-on patient care, shadowing
or observation opportunities through the High School Student Volunteer
Program at Torrance Memorial.
