Thank you for your interest in the Junior Volunteer Program at Ochsner Health.

Applications for the Summer 2024 junior volunteer program are now available.

The junior volunteer program is offered at multiple locations during the summer for high school students between the ages of 14-17. It is a great way for students to explore a future career in healthcare by gaining experience in a hospital. It is also a wonderful opportunity to help others in your local community.

Additional on-boarding requirements include reference letters, orientation (with parent/legal guardian), and health screening (through document submission). More information will be provided.

To become a part of the volunteer team, please complete the online application form. The application will be forwarded directly to your local Volunteer Services Office for consideration. Due to the overwhelming response, please allow time for processing. We appreciate your patience. Once processed, a member of the volunteer staff will then contact you if a position is available with additional program details and requirements. You can expect some programs to offer half-day volunteer opportunities (Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. - noon) during 2-3 week sessions in June and July.

Please check with your local regional volunteer leader to learn about the program structure, session dates, application deadlines, and other important information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at
