VA Butler Announces Summer Youth Volunteer Program

Butler, PA – Youth 14 and older are invited to participate in VA Butler Healthcare’s Voluntary Services Annual Summer Youth Volunteer Program that runs from June through September. The focus for this year’s program is “Special Assignments” with 12 areas of interest youth can choose from such as escorting, clerical support and shuttle service to name a few. 

To volunteer, youth must complete the Summer Youth Volunteer Program Packet and attend an orientation held at VA Butler Healthcare. Orientations consist of a TB Test, fingerprinting and a general training on areas of infection control, wheelchair usage and safety.  Completed packets are due into the Voluntary Services office five business days prior to the scheduled orientation date. Orientation dates and times for the Annual Summer Youth Volunteer Program are:

  • Tuesday, June 7, 2011                    8am – 12pm
  • Saturday, June 18, 2011                 8am – 12pm
  • Tuesday, June 28, 2011                  8am – 12pm

The Summer Youth Volunteer Program Packet can be mailed, e-mailed or downloaded from VA Butler’s website www.butler.va.gov in the “volunteer or donate”section.  Youth volunteers may continue their volunteer service throughout the year supporting activities in the evenings, weekends and days when school is not in session or cancelled.

For more information, or to obtain a Summer Youth Volunteer Program Packet contact Paula McCarl, Voluntary Service Coordinator, at 724-285-2575 or e-mail at Paula.McCarl@va.gov.
