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 is available for teenagers 14 - 19 years old. The application will be available beginning Thursday, Feb. 1, 2024 and will remain open until 5 p.m. on Friday, March 29, 2024. 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 their most recent coursework at school. All these items can be uploaded and submitted online through the application.
