Hospitals


Interested in medicine? Enjoy helping people? Then volunteering at your local hospital might be just the thing for you. Just call a hospital in your area and ask to speak to the volunteer coordinator or the director of volunteers. We found out about volunteer opportunities at Mason General Hospital in Shelton, Washington, where there are many volunteer opportunities for teens 14-18 years old. These include stocking nursing supplies, transporting patients with a nurse, making some pharmacy deliveries to nurse departments, bringing books to patients, sitting and talking to patients, and reading to patients.
