STAR Volunteen Program

Baptist Health’s Little Rock and North Little Rock campuses are working in tandem on a summer outreach program for highly motivated youth volunteers.  The STAR Volunteen Program will offer young people the opportunity to learn about careers in healthcare by serving in a variety of hospital departments.

There are several significant changes in our program for 2014, most notably that there will be only one session lasting for seven weeks.  The summer schedule for both the Little Rock and North Little Rock campuses is as follows:

Monday, June 16  - Friday, August 1, 2014 

(beginning and concluding one week later than the 2013 program)

Applications will be accepted online beginning on Wednesday, January 1, 2014.  Qualified applicants must:

   * complete the online application

   * be entering (preferably) the 9th - 12th grades during the coming fall semester

   * be available and committed to serve no less than 12 full workdays
