From Central Texas Medical Center

Central Texas Medical Center is instilling the value of serving others in local youth. This summer 32 teenagers have volunteered their time to the hospital as part of its annual Junior Volunteer Program.

Each of the young students will spend five weeks assisting various departments at CTMC.  The volunteers range from age 13 to 18 and each will spend approximately four hours per day, Monday through Friday, as they share their services with employees and visitors.

“These teenagers are learning important life skills such as community service, common courtesy and business etiquette,” said Belinda Gardner, Director of Volunteer Services.
