Summer Volunteen Program

Teens volunteer to make a difference in their community.

Summer Volunteens

COVID-19 Notice

Health and safety are our top priorities at ChristianaCare. We will continue to provide the exceptional care our patients and families have come to expect from us every day. While the Summer VolunTeen Program is scheduled to take place this summer, it will be adjusted to minimize in-person contact to protect our employees, volunteers, and patients. Thank you for your understanding.

The Summer VolunTeen Program at ChristianaCare offers a variety of ways for students between the ages of 14 and 18 to make a difference through service to their community. VolunTeens are a vital resource, bringing talent and a fresh perspective, and a shared sense of commitment that benefits our patients, families, and caregivers. In exchange, VolunTeens will acquire new and innovative skill sets to support them through their school, career, and life journey.
