Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert medical centers, both part of the Dignity Health network of hospitals, are getting ready to accept applications for their summer “Volunteen” program. Since its inception in 2008, more than 500 teens have served more than 20,640 hours.

Volunteens should be between the ages of 14 and 18 (before June 1) and have an interest in helping others, gaining work experience and making new friends at either hospital. Approximately 150 Volunteens will be accepted into the program and will assist with services such as escorting patients, delivering flowers and newspapers, performing clerical duties; assisting at the nursing stations and running miscellaneous errands around the medical center — among other duties. In return, volunteers will receive a meal voucher.

A parent information session will be held from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 25 at Gilbert’s Campo Verde High School, 3870 S. Quartz St. (near the intersection of Val Vista and Germann roads). Those interesested but who cannot attend the parent information session, may get an application packet online after March 1.
