(Greenwood, S.C., March 15, 2018) High School students in our community will become the workforce of the future. Promoting healthcare careers early inspires students to develop the skills and attitudes that will lead to a successful career in healthcare. The Self Regional Healthcare Student Volunteer Program offers the opportunity for students to explore a wide variety of careers in a healthcare facility and broaden their knowledge of existing opportunities.

Students must be 15 years of age and a rising high school sophomore, junior or senior at the time of application. Applicants must also maintain at least a “C” grade point average and have a guidance counselor’s recommendation. We request that all students be interested in a healthcare career.

The summer student volunteer program has limited occupancy, and only fifty students will be accepted. Applications can be obtained from a school guidance counselor, or you may call (864) 725-4177 and leave a message with your name and address to have an application mailed to you.

Volunteer Services will not accept applications received after the deadline of 12pm, April 19. When you receive a copy of the application, make sure you meet all the mandatory requirements listed on the cover page. Incomplete applications will not be accepted and all applications are processed on a first come, first serve basis.

There are dates and times set for students to attend parent meeting, orientation and health screening and a TB screening. These are the only times available for students to meet these requirements. Please make sure when you apply, you are able to attend all the sessions that are on the cover sheet of the application.

The application packet contains 12 pages; students are encouraged to drop them off in person to ensure we receive it and can check at that time to make sure the packet is complete. Volunteer Services is located on the second floor in the area with Human Resources, the main campus-entrance “A”.
