Summer Teen Volunteer Program

Grady’s Teen Volunteer Program is for students ages 15-17. Teen Volunteers work in areas around the health system. They perform customer service and basic office tasks. Grady staff supervises Teen Volunteers at all times. Teens cannot participate in any direct patient care.
