Touro Infirmary is accepting applications from high school students, ages 14 to 17, for its summer Junior Volunteer Program, June 8 to July 24.

“This program introduces students to the workplace, specifically the health care environment, and provides an opportunity for students to earn service hours for school,” said Denise Chetta, director of volunteer services.

Applications are available at volunteer. The deadline for submission is March 30, and interviews will be scheduled during students’ spring break.

To qualify, students must have completed the eighth grade, include a copy of their immunization records with their application, commit to a minimum of 50 service hours, and attend a health screening on May 2 and orientation on June 8.
