Summer 2015 was a banner year for WVU Medicine's Volunteer Services. Seventy-nine junior volunteers – some of the community's brightest and most generous youth – provided thousands of hours of service throughout 20 on- and off-site departments.
"Our Junior Volunteer program provides extra help for patients and staff and gives school-age students real-life, hands-on experience in a healthcare workplace," said Jena Prokopchuk, director of Rosenbaum Family House and Volunteer Services. "Our juniors visited patients, greeted guests, answered phones, filed and faxed, prepared meals and much more. Some will continue their service into the school year by helping in the evenings and weekends."
This year, Volunteer Services captured the junior volunteers' experiences in photos. Check out the video to see the young, smiling faces and scrapbook pages they created about their service to WVU Medicine.
