Due to COVID-19 and restrictions on visitors in the hospital and all facilities, Howard County General Hospital’s Volunteer Services Program is currently on hold. At this time, we are not accepting applications for adult volunteers, student volunteers, interns or observers. We appreciate your interest and look forward to resuming all volunteer services activities as soon as it is safe to do so. Please email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and take care!
High school students, ages 16-18, are eligible to apply as a VolunTeen.
This is a great opportunity for young people not only to contribute to their community, but also discover if a career in health care is in their future. Teens that are accepted into the program may use their volunteer hours towards their student-service learning requirements.

We expect our VolunTeens to take their volunteer assignment seriously, just as they would their class attendance or employment. If you are unable to meet the required time commitment, we ask that you please do not apply. Applicants who miss the deadline or who turn in incomplete packets will not be considered for the VolunTeen Program. Not all teens who receive application packets will be accepted into the program.
Do not apply online; the online application is for adults only.
