Information For Youth Volunteers
Welcome Youth Volunteers- Ages 16-18 years old!
BGHA accepts youth 16-18 years of age only. Thank you.
Please note: Co-op student placements are handled through the human resources department. If you are applying to do a co-op at QHC for school credit, please have your highschool co-op coordinator contact Human Resources (click here) for email or call 613-969-7400 ext. 2923.
Volunteering is a great way to gain experience and contribute to your community! You learn new skills by trying new jobs. You might find something you'd like to do for a living! Employers and post secondary schools will be impressed that you took the initiative to learn new things and give your time. Best of all, you will be Making Your Impact- and helping people along the way!
The Paperwork Needed:
Start out by opening and printing the Volunteer Package for Youth. This package contains all the information you need to do the paperwork required to apply for a volunteer position at the hospital.
Please note: we can not guarantee a lot of hours each week. Generally youth volunteers are scheduled for one or maybe two shifts per week- sometimes more in the summer months depending on how much you are available through the daytime hours. Depending on where you volunteer, the shift could be 2-4 hours in length. It's a REALLY good idea to start volunteering in the summer months when you have more time through the daytime hours- but start the application process during March Break so all your paperwork is done well in advance. We have a lot of youth volunteers in the summer months!
All new volunteers receive orientation to the hospital. If you are available to attend orientation in person, call the office to register for an upcoming orientation session held the last Wednesday of each month at 1:30pm in the Volunteer Services office on level 2 at QHC Belleville General Hospital. RSVP by emailing email@example.com or by calling (613) 969-7400 ext. 2297.
If you are not able to attend the orientation due to school, we do provide the option to do orientation online. Print and fill out the Online Orientation Review Sheet, and complete it as you view the online orientation. Be sure to hand it in with all your paperwork to the volunteer office.
Please book a time to meet with the volunteer when all your paperwork is complete. The BGH Auxiliary Volunteer Coordinator can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 613-969-7400 ext. 2297.
ONLINE ORIENTATION: Please ensure you print and have your Online Orientation Review Sheet with you, along with a pen in order to complete the required "review codes", which will be given out as you go through the video. Also, please print, or open Making Volunteer Services Accessible for reference as part of the orientation video. All the information covered is mandatory to ensure the safety of patients, family members, staff and volunteers!
