2021 Summer Volunteen Program at Northside Hospital-Atlanta – Tentative Plans

Good News: Although we are uncertain as to whether we will have the program, we are proceeding with planning and will make a decision on March 29, 2021.

Bad News: The pandemic has altered the manner in which our program is normally implemented so please carefully read the clarifications below.

  1. “Returning teens” will be considered first.
    1. These are teens who participated successfully in the summer of 2019.
    2. An email letter & application will be sent on March 1st with program details.  Nothing will be mailed to you so please inform us if your email has changed.
    3. Completed applications may be emailed or faxed per instructions in email letter.
    4. Returning teens will be considered on a first-received, first-placed order.  Get your applications in ASAP after you receive our March 1st email!
  2. “New teens” for last year’s 2020 program will be considered next.
    1. These are teens who were interviewed on March 7th 2020.
    2. An email letter & application will be sent on April 5th with program details.  Nothing will be mailed to you so please inform us if your email has changed.
    3. If we don’t have an available space, you will be notified in this April 5th email.
    4. Completed applications may be emailed or faxed per instructions in email letter.
    5. “New teens” will also be considered on a first-received, first-placed order.  Get your applications in ASAP after you receive our April 5th 2021 email!
  3. Unfortunately we cannot accept any other teens this year.
  4. On March 29th 2021 an email with specific program details will be sent to all teens who were invited to apply.
  5. We will be accepting many fewer teens this year due to limited service areas.
  6. We will be sending applications ONLY to teens who we already know from prior 2019 service or from our March 7th 2020 in-person interviews.

Given the uncertainties of the effects of the pandemic:

  1. The Volunteen Program will take place only if it is safe to do so.
  2. Patience and flexibility will be necessary:
    1. We will not know if the Volunteen Program can proceed until March 29th 2021.
    2. We don’t know exactly what service areas will be available.
  3. A definitive answer as to whether or not the program can take place will be announced by March 29th 2021.

Mark your calendars with these Key Dates:

March 1, 2021 – Email invitation/application sent to qualified Returning Teens

March 15, 2021 – Returning Teen applications due

March 29, 2021 – Decision on whether the program can proceed will be announced on this website page and in emails sent to all teens who were invited to apply for the 2021 Volunteen Program.
