Health Careers Club (9th-12th graders)GHS’ Health Careers Clubs give high school students the opportunity to learn more about health careers through activities, simulations, and projects led by medical professionals. Students accepted into the program meet one Thursday each month from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm on the Greenville Memorial Medical Campus. Dues are $15 per year.
Volunteering (Age 15+)GHS offers a summer teen volunteer program to high school students ages 15 and older. Students, who are willing to commit to volunteer at least 40 hours during the summer, are placed in various clinical and non-clinical areas across GHS. Individuals may request specific areas, but these requests are not guaranteed. Please note: volunteer opportunities do not provide direct patient care. Applications for the summer are due each year by May 1. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
