DANVILLE, Pa. – Geisinger Lewistown Hospital, Geisinger Medical Center, Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center and Geisinger Community Medical Center are accepting applications until Friday, March 31, for the summer Junior Volunteer Program.

Teens between the ages of 15 and 18 have the opportunity to participate in an eight-week structured service program from June 19 through August 11. In the Junior Volunteer Program, they’ll learn about healthcare and potential careers in the field. Weekly educational workshops offer them the chance to explore various areas in the healthcare environment.

Diverse service opportunities and planned educational sessions fill out the program and offer an exceptional learning opportunity. Volunteering gives teens experience while they give back to their community. Students are eligible to earn the Presidential Service Award for the hours they serve. 

Anyone interested must submit an online application, provide references, successfully complete the interview process and commit to serving a minimum of four to five hours each week during the eight-week summer session. The admission process is competitive and space in the program is limited. To apply for the Junior Volunteer Program at Geisinger, visit and submit an application by March 31.
