Junior volunteers must be going into 9th grade and between the ages of 14-17. Applications are accepted February - May each year. The program is very popular and spaces fill up quickly; those interested should apply as soon as possible.
Applicants who meet our minimum requirements will be contacted in May to schedule a phone interview. Afterwards, those who are preliminary accepted into the program will receive information packets in the mail. A health screening and drug test are required, and information about these requirements will be included in the packet. Orientations will be held in June. Prospective junior volunteers must attend one of these orientations with a parent/guardian before starting to volunteer at Ochsner.
For additional information, please call Ochsner's Volunteer Services Department at 504-842-5085.
