Mercy VolunTeen Program in Northwest AR

Mercy is honored to offer teens an opportunity to experience six weeks of summer service in our hospital and clinics. Applicants must be 15 – 18 years old to apply.

Applications will be accepted from March 15 – May 5.  After all applications are reviewed, a letter will be mailed out to applicants by May 12 regarding acceptance to the program.  Please note that there are a limited number of volunteer positions available for our summer program.

Update: as of May 2018 all summer teen volunteer positions have been filled. Please check back again next year.

For your personal planning, Volunteens will be required to attend one three-hour orientation, which will be offered on June 12 or June 15. All new Volunteens must attend one of these two offered sessions in order to participate in the program.

In order to apply, each student must commit to volunteer four hours per week from June 12 to July 21.  Please do not apply if you will be absent or unable to serve for more than one week during that period.

Volunteens will be required to provide current proof of TB screening that can be obtained through their personal care provider. If they choose, they can attend our free TB skin test clinic and they will be required to return in 48-72 hours to have the test read.

Returning teens will be accepted into our summer program, but must send in a new application with parent/guardian signature.  (reference letters are not required for returning Volunteens)

*If you are 18 or older and would like to participate in our summer program, please complete an adult application, which is available at mercy.net/donate. Please indicate on the application that you are interested in summer service only.
