High School Volunteer Program
This unique program is for teens between 14 to 18 years of age attending
high school in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade at the time of orientation. It
is designed for high school students who are looking for community service,
searching for ways to help others and their community while having an
opportunity to explore health care careers.
The High School Volunteer Program will ask that students commit 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.
How Do I Become A High School Student Volunteer
For a sneak peek at our commitments and to see if the program is right
for you, view the
High School Student Volunteer Program Information Sheet.
Application to the high school volunteer program begins with your attendance
at a student and parent/guardian information meeting. At this meeting
you will hear about volunteering at Torrance Memorial as well as the requirements
and commitment for joining. Important note: Based on past experience we
expect to receive significantly more applications than we can accommodate
at orientation. Therefore, our selection process will include a modified
random selection component for choosing students for the next orientation.
