Summer teen program

Thank you for your interest in the UVA Prince William Auxiliary’s Summer Teen Volunteer Program!

The program will be held at UVA Prince William Medical Center, 8700 Sudley Road, Manassas, Virginia. ONLY completed application packets, to include references, will be accepted. The application provides program requirements for participation. All applicants must have completed their sophomore year of high school by summer 2022. We offer a choice of four two-week sessions, which will introduce students to the culture of the hospital.

For 2022, there are only 64 available slots in the Summer Teen Program. Any applications received after the first 64, will be placed on a waiting list. All completed applications will be evaluated, and our Summer Teen Coordinator will contact the accepted applicants. This program is very popular, so early submission is recommended. Applicants must submit a completed application packet by April 8th.

We offer a choice of four two-week sessions, which will introduce students to the culture of the hospital by rotating through four different service areas, which may include Emergency Department, Guest Services, Surgical Services, Materials Management, Physical Therapy, Registration, and the Gift Shop. Summer Teen applicants will be assigned to one of these four program sessions for 2022:

    • June 20th – July 1st
    • July 2nd – July 15th
    • July 18th – July 29th
    • August 1st – August 12th

Requirements for participation:

    1. Have finished the sophomore year of high school by summer 2022.
    2. Be a student in good standing with a “B” grade point average or above.
    3. Submit a complete application packet (application form and all supporting paperwork)
    4. Obtain written parental consent.
    5. Provide an up-to-date immunization record to include our required vaccinations and a copy of your COVID-19 vaccine and booster documentation (if it has been six months since your last immunization – per CDC recommendation).
    6. Attend the Parent-Guardian/Teen introduction meeting.
    7. Attend a group teen interview.
    8. Attend the in-person teen program orientation/training meeting.
    9. Purchase a uniform (shirt) $20.00 at orientation.

Acceptance Process: Submission of your application is the first step in a multi-step process to gain acceptance into the program.

Step 1: Upon receiving your completed application packet and having been accepted, we will invite you and your parents or legal guardian via email to the Parent/Teen Volunteer Introduction Meeting. Attendance at this meeting is required for all participants and at least one parent/guardian, for inclusion in the program. At this meeting we will discuss the commitment required by our volunteers to be in the program and the various service areas available to the teen volunteers.

Step 2:
At the Parent/Teen Volunteer Introduction Meeting you will schedule a time for your interview. All applicants are required to attend an interview before they can be officially accepted into the program.

Step 3: You will then be required to attend an Orientation/Training meeting which is the first day of the two-week program. At this meeting, you will learn about confidentiality, infection prevention, fire and safety, patient care and much more. Your uniform shirt ($20.00) and ID Badge will be given to you on that day. Lunch is provided by the hospital on the first day and last day of each session.

Teens must complete the entire two-week program to be eligible for a certificate of completion.

Scholarship Program: UVA Prince William Auxiliary offers scholarships annually to high school seniors and college students. Successful completion of the Summer Teen Program may provide the applicant with an option to volunteer year-round for scholarship eligibility.

Membership: UVA Prince William Auxiliary reserves the right to terminate the services of any teen who does not exhibit the qualities necessary for a successful volunteer experience.

Deadline for application: Friday, April 8, 2022 at midnight; USPS delivery must be postmarked on or before April 8, 2022.
