Junior Volunteers

Five weeks from June 19 through July 21.

The goal of our Junior Volunteer Program is to provide highly motivated students (ages 14 to 18) who are possibly interested in health care or other real-world experience with an opportunity to learn, help others, and give back. The program also helps departments that could use extra hands. Volunteering as a junior volunteer can be a great way to spend your summer.

Applications will be accepted from March 22 through April 28. The link to apply will be available no later than March 22.

Interviews will be May 2 through 5.

Volunteers must check in and out each day. They are not allowed to leave the hospital during their shift. Transportation must be provided and volunteer needs to be picked up at the end of their shift. A parent or guardian signature will be required on permission to participate form for students under the age of 18.

  • Must be a least 14 years of age by the date of orientation.

  • Orientation will be held in person at the MUSC Downtown location. This is a mandatory training. Date and time to be announced.
