We are delighted that you are interested in applying for the Junior Volunteer Program here at Nash UNC Health Care. Student volunteers are impacted through meaningful experiences and gain valuable job skills right here in our community. Due to the intensive nature of our training process, we are unable to offer short-term volunteering. There are a limited number of spaces in the Junior Volunteer Program this year due to the nature of COVID-19.

Application Process and Required Forms

  • Students should plan to fill out the application with a parent/guardian since signature is required.
  • You will be required to provide contact information for two professional or academic references in the online application. This means a teacher, counselor, employer, etc. Family members, neighbors, and family friends are not appropriate references. These references may be contacted in the spring to determine your placement in the program.
  • After your application is received, you may be contacted for a personal interview. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applicants we are unable to interview all candidates.
