The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital recently elected officers to their 2018-2019 Teen Leadership Board. The board aims to further connect high school students with the Hospital’s mission and provide opportunities for members to learn, grow and give.
All board members have successfully completed the VOLUME Summer Program. VOLUME is a seven-week program designed for high school students interested in pursuing careers in the health care field. VOLUME exposes students to multiple areas of health care and allows them to interact with patients and staff.
“The Teen Leadership Board was created as a response to the energy and passion demonstrated by VOLUME participants towards the Hospital. This is the fourth year for the board, but our first year to raise money for the Hospital. I am continually amazed by the intelligence, enthusiasm and compassion these students possess. Their willingness to serve the Hospital’s patients, staff and families is humbling,” said Amy Coldren, manager of volunteer services, The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital.
Board members attend monthly meetings from September through April. Members will volunteer outside of monthly meetings, assisting with special events and working with patients at bedside. The board has elected to designate all funds raised to the Hospital’s special education department.
