I cannot tell you how wonderful this program has been for our daughter. She loves the floor you chose for her. The people she works with are kind and helpful. She definitely is going to do something in the medical field, now.
Thank you so much for having our son in your summer program. We can see him growing before our eyes. Each day he comes home so excited to tell us what he has learned and been able to do while at St. John.
Our daughter doesn’t want to go on the family vacation this summer because she LOVES being at St. John so, so much!
Junior Volunteer comments:
It’s a great way to spend my summer!
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!
St John volunteering is an easy way to make new friends who want to do the same career as you.
I like that we get to see the “behind the scenes” things that go on in the hospital.
Being at St. John has helped me to know that I can really help others through volunteering; it has made me see all the possibilities for me in healthcare industry.
I can’t wait to get to St. John each week to find out just what new things there are for me to learn. The Junior Program is awesome! I have learned so much this summer.
I am really shy and being here has allowed me to make new friends and not be so shy.
SJMC staff comments:
Just a quick note to let you know that I couldn't have asked for better Junior Volunteers on our floor! The girls you've assigned to my unit go way beyond all expectations. They are eager, helpful, kind, and always a step ahead of me!
In one of my meetings today, a co-worker commented that one of her friends is a patient on 12 West and that the Junior Volunteers were great. She said they brightened the day when they came in and before they left they asked if there was anything else they could do for them.
Best group of Juniors ever! From a Charge Nurse
These are some of the smartest, nicest kids that have ever volunteered here! We think they are a true blessing to our patients and staff. Floor Nurse
