The Volunteen program invites 15 teenagers to participate in one of two summer sections for an experience of learning, personal growth and creative fun. To qualify for admission into the 2013 program, you must be at least 16 years of age and no older than 18 years of age by May 15, 2013 (born on May 16, 1994 or after, but before or on May 15, 1997).
With only 30 spots available, the Volunteen program is very competitive and only takes those with the strongest character, most evident spirit, and sharpest minds. The program is highly demanding, as each teen works closely with patients, siblings and parents. It also allows the teen to explore possible career paths and develop leadership and team building skills while fostering self-awareness.
Volunteens serve two days each week during one of the two, four-week sections. The first section meets on Mondays and Wednesdays and begins June 3, 2013 and ends June 26, 2013. The second section meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays and begins July 9, 2013 and ends August 1, 2013. Please do not apply for the program unless you will be able to attend all eight days of the section you choose. There will be at least one additional optional activity each session.
The program attracts many applicants each summer. Each teen must complete an essay and an application. A committee reviews these and scores each candidate using a point system. Read the tips below to obtain your highest score possible. The top candidates are invited to join the program.
Please note that this program is in Memphis, Tennessee. Volunteens must provide their own housing and all of their own transportation.
