VolunTEEN Program

The REX VolunTEEN Program gives teenagers the opportunity to contribute to the community while exploring a career in the medical field. The program provides teenagers with practical experience and practice while developing good work habits. High school sophomores, juniors and seniors ages 14-18 may apply.

VolunTEEN assignments are based on information provided by teens during the interview process and may include areas such as patient care units, day care, the recovery room, office support assignments and more. Teens whose parents work at UNC REX will be assigned to separate areas to avoid placing parents in a supervisory role.
