VolunTeen program students with Dr. Hwu

Application Dates: February 5, 2024 at 8 a.m. through February 19, 2024 at 4 p.m.

The VolunTeen program is for students ages 15-17, who have completed their first year of high school, and is designed to expose teens to healthcare careers while receiving hands-on volunteer experience. For those students 18 years of age at the time of application, you are encouraged to apply to the student/adult program for the fall session. 

This year’s program will provide teens with a unique opportunity to learn about the inner workings of Moffitt Cancer Center.  VolunTeens will also learn about Moffitt’s values and how our values are actualized in the work we do every day.  During the summer program, teens will receive hands on volunteer experience, volunteering with various departments throughout the hospital.

During the 2022 summer program, teens were involved in a video project focused on interviewing Moffitt staff and learning about the diverse career opportunities at the center. Several of the careers profiled begin right after high school graduation. Moffitt offers team members a tuition reimbursement program that can help you pay for college, while also building your career. The videos were produced, directed, filmed and edited by our VolunTeens!

The VolunTeen Program will be offered in two 4-week sessions (Summer A and B). Teens will be volunteering 3 days per week, from Monday – Thursday, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.

•    Summer A Session will run from Monday June 3-Thursday June 27
•    Summer B Session will run from Monday July 8- Thursday August 1

Teens will participate in either Summer A OR B, not both. Session preference will be requested on the electronic application. Applicants must be at least 15 years of age and have completed ninth grade at the time of application
