South Central Regional Medical Center Honors Teen Volunteerss

Posted on: May 12, 2022

In 2018, South Central Regional Medical Center began a teen volunteer program in conjunction with its adult program. The Caring Teen Volunteer Program is open to local teenagers, ages 16 to 18. Along with providing volunteer opportunities, the teens are able to observe and develop new skills, network with medical professionals, become educated on the various careers available within the healthcare field and make new friends.

South Central Regional Medical Center wishes to recognize three of the Caring Teen Volunteers that donated hours of service during the 2021-22 year; Olivia Burchfield, Northeast Jones High School, WyKendrick Jones, Heidelberg High School, and Anne Marie Sullivan, Laurel Christian School.

SCRMC’s Caring Teen Volunteer Program is designed to encourage teens in our community to join the volunteer team while learning about the various roles in healthcare and earning community service hours. Volunteering makes an immeasurable difference in the lives of others. Volunteering for SCRMC offers many opportunities of service for individuals, ages 16 years old and up.
