Do you have students looking to go into a nursing or medical career? Wesley Medical Center offers a VolunTEEN Program. VolunTEENS must be 14-18 years old and have completed the 8th grade to be a part of the program. Require students to have a negative TB test within the last year (and provide documentation of that), purchase a red Wesley VolunTEEN polo for $16 to wear with khakis as their uniform, and pick 1 or 2 days during the week where they can volunteer 8 am to 4:30 pm over the summer. During the school year VolunTEENS may come in after school, on weekends, or days off from school. VolunTEENS are an important part of the healthcare team and lend a helping hand in many areas of the medical center.
