If you are a young person interested in eventually working in the healthcare system, the opportunity to do so is now available thanks to a summer program established by Blessing Hospital. The program is known as the Summer Youth Corps Program. The 2019 Blessing Hospital Youth Corps application is now available at blessinghealth.org/youthcorps. Applications will be accepted now through April 30.

The program allows young people to spend part of their summer serving others, gaining work experience and learning about careers in healthcare as a Blessing Hospital volunteer.

Youth Corps applicants must be 13 years old or older by June 1 and available to volunteer between the months of June and August of 2019.

Any questions about the program can be directed to Lynn Eggers-Meyer at 217-223-8400, ext. 6821 or email at lynn.eggersmeyer@blessinghealthsystem.org.
