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.

To discuss teen volunteer opportunities and the next teen orientation, call Marie Archer at 419-661-4001 or email marcher@hospicenwo.org.

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