The well-being of our patients, families, volunteers, and staff is our utmost priority. In light of the continuation of guidelines designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community, UF Health Volunteer Services has made the very difficult decision to cancel all upcoming Summer VolunTEEN Sessions.

Thank you for your interest in our program. Please check back in January 2021 for more information about future opportunties.

Volunteering at an academic medical center allows you to interact with visitors, patients and staff associated with one of the Southeast's premier health care systems.

2020 Application

If interested in volunteering at UF Health Jacksonville, please call (904) 244-4271 or visit ufhealthjax.org/volunteer/

Please complete the VolunTEEN application process in the following order:

Step one

Complete a VolunTEEN application.

  • Application Opens: 9am January 6, 2020
  • Application Closes: 9am January 31, 2020

Completing the application will give you access to the Volunteer Information Center (VIC), required for step two.

Step two

Sign up for a mandatory Information Session by logging in to the Volunteer Information Center (VIC). All VolunTEEN applicants and one parent/guardian, must attend this information session. Use the e-mail address and password you used on the application as your username and password. The Information Session provides information about our volunteer program and the steps and requirements necessary to become a volunteer.

  • Information Session date: February 1, 2020
  • If no Information Session spots are available, please check back regularly to see if a spot opens up.
  • Applicants who do not attend a mandatory Information Session are not eligible to continue with the VolunTEEN Application process and will need to reapply for next year’s VolunTEEN program.

Step three

After attending the Information Session you will be invited to complete the remaining VolunTEEN application requirements. Details and additional information will be provided at the information session.

Due to the immense interest in our VolunTEEN program, not all applicants that apply may be accepted. Our summer program has limited placement opportunities.


Acceptance into the Summer VolunTEEN Program is based on review of application, interview by the VolunTEEN selection panel, and receipt of completed application packet.
