Teen Volunteers

More than 40 teens from area high schools volunteer at Hospice of Northwest Ohio. Teens visit with patients and their families and help the staff with many tasks. They work after school or evenings and generally make a four-hour-per-month volunteer commitment. All teens must complete a comprehensive orientation before starting their volunteer assignment.
