GROW YOUR OWN: Component of a Great Youth Volunteer Program

Overview: Youth Volunteers are our future. We really do need to grow our own future healthcare workers.  This AHVRP Webinar offering includes a complete “Tool Kit” to supply you with the information you need to build and run a great program.  You will learn how to involve the staff and the adult volunteers in the program; also, how to engage the youth and parents while building lifelong allegiance to your facility.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to involve Administration and staff
  • Orientation requirements to meet Joint Commission standards
  • Best recruitment tool for Teen Volunteers
  • Basic mechanics of running a YV program

“Volunteers are unpaid not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.”
