Teen Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Upstate University Hospital’s Community Campus this summer. Volunteering is an exciting way to spend some of your summer time, to learn more about yourself, and consider your education and career choices.

Please read all the application materials and forms PDF Icon, and review them with your parent/guardian. Be sure to complete each page and submit the entire application by mail or in person by 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 1, at the address below To be fair to all applicants there will be no extension on submission of this material.

You will be expected to volunteer on a regular weekly schedule and devote a minimum of 50 hours over the course of the summer program. We consider this program your primary activity for the summer. Please consider your summer plans to be sure you can make this commitment. The maximum time away from our program would be two weeks. Anything longer than that would jeopardize completion of the 50 hours.
