No former volunteer experience is required. However, we expect all junior volunteers to be mature, dependable and committed to their duties.

If you are interested in becoming a Junior Volunteer, applications are available at the local high school guidance/counselors office and at the Adventist Health Bakersfield Gift Gallery during the open application period for the upcoming session. All applications must be complete and accompanied by a copy of your current transcript or report card. Due to the high volume of applications, not all applicants are guaranteed placement in the program, in addition incomplete or late applications will not be considered.
