CANTON, Ohio (April 25, 2012) – Aultman Hospital is offering an opportunity for high school students to volunteer over the summer months during their school break. Weekday and weekend volunteer opportunities are also available. Students are asked to commit to a minimum of four hours per week to the program. The program will run 10 weeks, and students are assigned to open volunteer positions throughout the hospital. Students will be placed on a first-come, first-served basis. All volunteers must be 15 years of age or older and have completed the ninth grade.
Potential volunteers must first submit a volunteer application, physician’s release, parental and guidance counselor forms to Aultman Volunteer Services.
