High School Volunteer Program

Each year, The University of Kansas Health System offers a High School Summer Volunteer Program. This is a unique opportunity for teens who have an interest in the healthcare field to learn how an academic medical center really works. These volunteers not only will get to make a difference in the lives of our patients, they will also get firsthand experience in observing both the clinical and nonclinical sides of the health system.

Program details

This volunteer program is open to high school students – incoming freshman through rising seniors. Applications are closed for 2022, but if you would like to be considered in the future, here are the details around the application process:

  • Be at least 14 years of age by program launch.
  • Commit to volunteer from 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at least 1 day a week (Monday-Thursday) during the program.
  • Fill out our online volunteer application.
  • Write a 250-500 word essay on “Why I Want to Volunteer at The University of Kansas Health System.”*
  • Apply by the deadline.
