Junior Volunteer Program

Summer 2016 Volunteer Applications Now Open

The Junior Volunteer Program for Summer 2016 is has reached capacity for this year.  The application period for Summer 2017 Junior Volunteers will open in March 2017.


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.


The Junior Volunteer Application can be found below or in the Volunteer Services Office.

Applicants who meet our minimum requirements will be contacted 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 May and June.

Prospective junior volunteers must attend one of these orientations with a parent/guardian before starting to volunteer at Ochsner.
