Junior Volunteers

Summer program forĀ 2023 is full. We are accepting no further applications.

People age 16 years to 18 years of age are also welcome to apply to become volunteers. If you are under 18 years of age, you will be a part of our Junior Volunteer program, usually in the summer months. We take 50 students each summer to work in a variety of departments. We also have a limited number of positions after school and weekends for Juniors during the school year who wish to continue volunteering after the summer program ends each year. You need to be able to complete a minimum of 8 weeks of volunteering in order to participate in the summer program. If you are unable to make that commitment we ask that you not even apply.

The application process is similar to that of an adult volunteer. Juniors must contact the Volunteer Office directly at 860-358-6735. There are additional forms to complete which include parental permission forms and a health form to take to your doctor. There are also application completion dates that need to be met for the summer program in order to guarantee acceptance into the summer program. Final decision as to acceptance in to the program will be made by the Director of Volunteers after all in-person interviews are completed.
