Junior Volunteers

Offering the unique opportunity to introduce young people ages 14 to 18 to medicine, our Junior Volunteer Program allows students to join us on missions. The Junior Volunteer is one of the hardest working members of the Blanca’s House team. Junior Volunteers support the running our hospital operations. They assist in patient intake, triage, data and medical notes input, and have the opportunity to observe in and out of the operating rooms. In addition, the following assistance is part of the responsibilities of a Junior Volunteer:

  • Lifting and moving equipment
  • Transporting patients
  • Escorting patients
  • Maintenance of paperwork
  • Translation (where applicable)
