Summer Teen Volunteers

Volunteers always have been an important part of the Norton Healthcare family. These compassionate individuals offer dedicated support to our patients, visitors and employees. Norton Healthcare’s summer volunteer program welcomes teens ages 14 through 18 to lend a much-appreciated helping hand.

The program runs from June 1 to Aug. 1. Volunteers have the option of supporting Norton Hospital or Norton Audubon Hospital. Volunteers must commit to a regular schedule of at least six hours per week for the duration of the eight-week program.

There are a limited number of positions available. Selected applicants will be contacted for an interview.

Complete an application to volunteer at Norton Audubon Hospital – Write “Summer VolunTEEN program” in the “Why Are You Interested in Volunteering?” field.

At this time, we are no longer accepting applications for summer 2022.
