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.
The 2014 program begins on Monday, June 2, 2014 and ends on Friday, July 25, 2014. Shifts are from 9 a.m.- Noon and Noon – 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. We do not have any weekend placements. Make certain that the eight-week session does not conflict with any plans (i.e. vacation, band, or camp) that you may have for the summer. You must be available six out of the eight weeks. July 4 is a holiday and will not be counted as an absence.

What volunteering isn't?
Volunteering is not an internship or a shadow program. It's also not an opportunity to get clinical experience. As a volunteer, you are not allowed to participate in direct patient care. We do not accept volunteers who are court ordered to perform community service.
All of these procedures are in place to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our patients and their families. Please call the Volunteer Services Department at (404) 616-4360 or e-mail Brooke Eldridge if you have questions.
