Teen Experience and Leadership Program

The application period for Grady’s Teen Experience and Leadership Program (TELP), sponsored by the Office of Health Equity, is now closed for Summer 2024.

TELP is open to youth in high school and between the ages of 14-19. Teens will shadow professionals in the hospital in 4-hour shifts. A minimum of one shift per 2 weeks is required. Hours count as volunteer hours. TELP offers a viable and dynamic solution through its mission to:

  • Enhance community partnerships by providing opportunities for teens to experience working in a healthcare system.
  • Provide exposure and experience with various health occupations.
  • Teach and enhance leadership skills.
  • Increase the workforce by developing a healthcare pipeline.
  • Provide opportunities for employees to be role models and increase their community engagement.

Affinity Groups

We are excited about our TELP program. This year, we will offer Affinity Groups and need leaders for those. Affinity Groups are an opportunity for you to directly affect a teen’s life. The groups will have 15- 20 teens interested in a particular interest. We would love for you to sign up. You’ll host a virtual, 1-hour meeting each week, and you can determine the day and time. Sign up here. Please share this with others who you think may be interested.

TELP Workshops

We also offer workshops for our TELP students to select from over the summer. The workshops are usually 1-2 hours long and focus on specific interests. See the proposed list of topics below. Click here if you are interested in leading a workshop.
