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.

Note: All teens must first submit an application along with a letter of reference and successfully complete an interview before being eligible for orientation.

"Hospice of Northwest Ohio is amazing. I only had them for a couple of months for my mom. They took a big load off of me as I was the only caregiver for my mom. They gave me so much support, comfort and help. I cannot praise them enough. Thank you."
