In 2018, 82 junior volunteers from 23 different towns and 18 different high schools completed a whopping 6,100 hours from the end of June through the third week of August.
Mary Brown, CAVS, Manager, Volunteer and Guest Services, said the program is about perception, perspective and to having an experience outside of the traditional school experience.
“This summer junior volunteers witnessed the perspective of surgeons, anesthesiologist, nurses, communications specialists, carpenters, physical therapists, physician assistants, advanced practice nurses, and more. It’s these experiences of that we hope will lead you a career path right for you,” said Brown.
Junior Volunteer Coordinator Selena Williamson extended her thanks to the Bridge volunteers for their service during a recognition program at the hospital on Aug. 23.
“You are what makes this program so amazing and beneficial with all the work you do for this hospital and its guests. Without you, this program wouldn’t continue to thrive. You all were chosen for a reason, for your kindness and compassion,” said Williamson.
