Thank you for your interest in joining the volunteer team at Loyola University Health System. The Junior Volunteer program is competitive, as there are limited roles for high school students. We are only able to accept the strongest applicants; we are unable to guarantee a position for all applicants.


Junior Volunteers must be at least 16 years old at time of application. We are unable to accept volunteers under the age of 16.


The Summer Junior Volunteer Program runs from the beginning of summer vacation to the end of summer vacation. Junior Volunteers must be able to make the minimum of an eight-week commitment and be able to make up absences (absences should not exceed two). Junior volunteers must be able to commit to 2 four-hour shifts per week, same days and times each week. Junior volunteer opportunities are available on weekdays (Monday through Friday), from 8am to 4:30pm. Junior Volunteers must be ages 16-18 years old and attending high school.


Please complete this application and the Volunteer Services Department will get in touch with you to schedule the in-person interview. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Qualified applicants will be contacted by March 1st to schedule their in-person interview, which will take place during each applicant's Spring Break.


To ensure the safety of our patients and families, all volunteers must participate in a screening process including:

• Volunteer application

• In-person interview

• Criminal background check (provided at no cost)

• Health screening and drug test (provided at no cost)

• Annual seasonal flu vaccination (provided at no cost)

• Volunteer Orientation and Training


The volunteer orientation and training take place in June during each volunteer's first week serving as a volunteer.


Thank you again for your interest in joining our team!
