3 participants of the Junior Volunteer ProgramJunior Volunteers are people like you!

Junior volunteers are young people, aged 16 to 19, who have a passion for patient care. They range from grade 10 high school students to second year university students. Junior volunteers devote themselves to a two hour shift per week and optional special projects, under the direction of a supervisor.
