Piedmont Columbus Regional Volunteers

Piedmont Columbus Regional offers numerous volunteer opportunities, including in the Emergency Trauma Center at Piedmont Columbus Regional Midtown Campus, the John B. Amos Cancer Center and Piedmont Columbus Regional Northside Campus.

We have three different programs. Our Summer Youth Program (for ages 14-18), our TAPS program (college aged and short term volunteers, and the Auxiliary (long-term commitment) are ready to welcome you with open arms into the wonderful world of volunteering!

Youth Volunteer Program

For six weeks during the summer, youths from ages 14-18 may participate in the Columbus Regional Auxiliary Youth Volunteer program. Applications are available online and in the Auxiliary office from January to March 1.

Because their duties require the same dedication and commitment as adult volunteers, these youth volunteers are carefully selected. Our goal is to attract and retain Youth Volunteers who are passionately pursuing careers in healthcare. We strive to stimulate and engage the young adults who are participating in our program.

This summer, each volunteer accepted into our program must commit to 2 weeks (10 consecutive business days) at our hospital. We want our students to have a strong idea of all the different careers that are available to them in healthcare. During that time, students will experience 3 different placements, including some non-clinical areas. The hours each day are 9-3, so each student will accrue 60 hours of volunteer time during their program. At this time, students are not able to apply for more than one rotation. The schedule is as follows:

  • 1st rotation: June 3 - June 14
  • 2nd rotation: June 17 - June 28
  • 3rd rotation: July 8 - July 19

In addition to this enhanced experience, we have developed the Simply Better Youth Career Day, and all Youth Volunteers are required to attend. This one-time event on June 1 will include speakers from PCR Research Institute, the Stroke Center, and an afternoon career fair in the Conference Center with action stations from many different departments throughout the hospital.

Important Dates:

  • March 1st—applications due
  • March 8th—students invited to interview via student email on application
