Summer Youth Volunteer Program

The American Red Cross Fort Carson Station has a youth volunteer program for ages 14-17 years old.  This program runs through the summer from the end of the school year to the beginning of the school in the fall.  Once the youth completes the summer program, their volunteering can continue throughout the school year.

To join the program, each youth is required to complete an application and interview process.  The volunteer positions are career oriented.  This gives the youth an opportunity to see a field in the medical career that may be of interest to them for their future vocation.

Applications are available during the month of May at the Red Cross office located in Evan Army Community Hospital.  The application form will list the in-process requirements for youth to volunteers.  One requirement we recommend not waiting until May to complete, is having an up to date immunization record.  This is a federal requirement for all personnel working at a medical facility. 

 

Below is a list of the required immunizations. 

  • MMR

  • Hepatitis B

  • Varicella

  • Tetanus-Diphtheria or Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis (T/d or Tdap)

  • Tuberculin Skin Testing (TST)

 For more information, please contact the main volunteer office at 526-7144.
