Special Project Program Information
(Monthly Group Projects)
Are you looking for a way to help? ACH Volunteer Services can utilize Junior Volunteers (ages 14-18) to help with various non-patient contact projects. One Saturday a month (October, November, January, February, March and April), Volunteer Services will have various projects for teenagers to work on. These projects will not involve contact with patients - but will keep students busy by helping us assemble packets, sort/organize areas, and various other clerical projects.
Application packets for this special project program will be available beginning August 1 (available through January before the deadline).
- Will you be at least 14 by September 15th?
- Will you be able to commit to volunteering at least two Saturdays?
- Specific dates will be given to you once your information has been received. We will have one Saturday scheduled a month (in October, November, January, February, March and April).
- Will you be able to complete the special project program requirements?
- Complete Volunteer application and packet
- Two letters of reference
- Obtain a flu shot (during flu season)
- Adhere to the rules and regulations
If you are able to answer yes to the previous questions, please call Volunteer Services at 501-364-1812 or email Sandy Burrow (BurrowSS@archildrens.org) to request an application packet for the special project program. Applications for this program will be accepted between August 1 and January 30 (this deadline ensures you will be able to meet the minimum requirement of coming at least 2 Saturdays throughout the year).
Other Ways to Help
If you that cannot commit to a regular schedule, you can help with special projects off-campus. Click here to read about ways you can help. Helping with off-campus special projects is an excellent way to get service hours or to get your school or club involved.
