Southern Ohio Medical Center’s junior volunteers pose for a photo with Jenny Lavender (back row, far left) and Carol Burnheimer (back row, far right) of SOMC Volunteer Services. SOMC’s Junior Volunteer Program has become a popular way for students to enjoy a meaningful and rewarding summer. Junior volunteers are introduced to many facets of the hospital as they work right along-side adult volunteers and SOMC staff. Benefits of the summer Junior Volunteer Program include real-life experience and building job skills, meeting healthcare professionals, learning more about careers in healthcare and meeting new friends. To learn more about the volunteer opportunities available at SOMC, contact the Volunteer Office at 740-356-8234.
