Career Development

 

It is recommended and often required that any student interested in pursuing a career in a health-related field (nursing, medical, veterinary, social work, etc.) acquire up to 100 hrs of volunteer work.  The following is a list of local sites that sponsor student volunteers.

(Below the list of volunteer sites is a selection of links designed for career searches or career education.)
 

Health Related Volunteer Sites

*All sites require volunteers to have current physicals, immunizations, a letter of recommendation from their school counselor, and to be above the age of 14.  A working card is necessary for those students who are under the age of sixteen.
