ANNOUNCEMENTS

Beginning this fall, St. Elizabeth will be offering a Fall and a Spring Teen Volunteer Program, rather than our previous School Year Teen Volunteer Program. Both the Fall and Spring Programs require a minimum commitment of 10 weeks of service, with a regularly scheduled 3-4 hour volunteer shift each week.

Any student interested in participating in our program must register for Teen Volunteer Training through our webpage beginning September 1st. We encourage all interested teens to apply as soon as possible; space in this program is limited. If students have previously participated in a St. Elizabeth Volunteer Program, they should call (859) 301-2140 by September 15th to reserve their placement (they are not required to complete our initial Teen Volunteer Training again).

If you have any questions regarding St. Elizabeth’s Teen Volunteer Programs, please call (859) 301-2140 or email volunteer@stelizabeth.com.

The 2017-18 AHEC Health Careers Explorers Program is once again taking applications. This program is focused on high school 9-11 graders who have an interest in the health care sector and want to learn about their various career options. Once a month, Oct-March, the group will meet at a St Elizabeth Healthcare campus and be introduced to different departments and careers that work together in the hospital to treat patients. Many nights include a hands-on activity and there is always the opportunity to ask questions directly to the professionals about their decision and path to achieve the jobs that they hold.

The program does have a $20 fee and required shots/paperwork for participants, if accepted. Registration is open now through September 13th at the link below. You can also go there to get more information about the program and feel free to contact me with any further questions you might have. This is a competitive program, we typically see about 300 applicants and can only accept around 100 students each year. Applicants are ranked based on their current GPA, school (because we don’t want all of them from one school/county), grade level, and the quickness of their registration.
