Student Volunteers

We consider you a student volunteer if your purpose for volunteering is education-related, such as requirements for program entrance or other needs.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering gives students hands-on experience that can be a valuable learning opportunity.

As a student volunteer, you will:

  • Provide assistance as a part of the healthcare team
  • Make contacts – and new friends
  • Develop a great sense of purpose and appreciation of your own life

References are also provided upon request.

What are the guidelines for student volunteers?

Student volunteers must be 16 years old at the time of application.

Our Junior Volunteers program is available for 14–16 year olds.

If you are required by your program of study to do an internship, please contact Ballad Health organizational development for more information and further instructions.

How much time do student volunteers donate?

Students are required to commit to and complete a minimum of 30 hours over the course of a semester or within a six-month time period in order to receive verification of their service hours.
