Junior Volunteers

The ACH Junior Volunteer Program introduces high school students (ages 14-18) to the world of volunteering and health care careers. Junior volunteers gain new skills, meet new people, and help make a difference in the community!

Summer Program Information

Application packets will be available beginning February 3, 2014.

The Summer Junior Volunteer program deadline is April 1st. We encourage you to request a packet and return it as early as possible, as positions are limited. After returning the completed packet, if the volunteer is selected to move forward, an interview with the applicant and parent/guardian is required.

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).
