VolunTEEN - Volunteer - Careers - Eskenazi Health

The VolunTEEN program provides Indianapolis teens with the opportunity to explore careers in health care. Along with getting an in-depth view of a day in the life of a variety of professions, participants also discuss educational requirements, networking opportunities and goal-setting.

The program application is available for teenagers 14 - 19 ears old and remains open until 5 p.m. on Friday, April 15, 2022. The application also requires a 500-word essay about the applicant’s interest in exploring health care, past experiences related to health-care settings and the career the applicant is most interested in exploring. Each applicant must also submit an unofficial transcript covering the most recent coursework at school. All of these items can be submitted online through the application.

The program will run for two weeks, Monday – Friday, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., and will include both virtual and in-person opportunities. In 2022, Eskenazi Health hopes to offer more face-to-face interaction in a hospital setting (pending COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the program) through shadowing and volunteering. The first week includes orientation, professional development training, and activities related to building knowledge about health care careers and educational requirements. The second week will include shadowing and volunteering in a hospital- and patient-care setting. There will be four sessions from which to choose.

Please complete the online application to apply for the 2022 program.
