The Gift of Service

"Oddly enough, my time as a volunteer may have done more for me than for anyone. The great experiences I have had and the people I have met through volunteering have changed my life."

Summer Youth Volunteer Program

Our Summer Youth Volunteer Program provides opportunities for students aged 14 to 17 in which they may give their time in a hospital or clinical setting. These volunteer jobs include Snack Cart, Book Cart, Valet Assistant, and Information Desk Guide among others.

Please read through the expectations listed below. If able to meet these expectations please print out the forms below, complete, and submit them to Tracy Bodrero at tracy.bodrero@hsc.utah.edu.
