Teen Volunteers

Do you need community service credits? Do you want to develop skills and earn certifications that will help springboard you towards a better professional reputation? Do you want to do volunteer work that is both rewarding and fun?

Hospice of the Chesapeake is a fully licensed, community-based non-profit organization. We provide services to terminally ill patients at the place that they call home - regardless of their age or ability to pay. In order to provide the best possible service to our patients and their families, Hospice of the Chesapeake depends on the generous support from the community, key business partners, and philanthropic operations to improve the quality of life for those in our community experiencing advanced illness or bereavement.

What Kind of Volunteering Would I Do?

As a teen volunteer, you will have a number of opportunities available to you. We will work with you to find you a position that you want that also makes the most of your skills. The following is just a small sample of the kind of volunteer work you can do for us.

  • Provide child care while parents attend grieving support groups, or help to develop age appropriate packages of games and books. We also have opportunities to participate as part of the teen corps for our bereavement camp. (This is great experience for those pursuing childhood education/teaching/etc.).
  • Volunteer in an administrative capacity-including data entry. (Great experience for those looking to work in an office setting)
  • Participate in Story Corps where you write stories about patients and their lives. (Wonderful for English majors and future authors).
  • Retail opportunities at our upscale consignment shop Treasures (Retail and sales experience).
  • A number of veteran initiatives, such as participating in veterans' events, or interviewing and capturing veteran stories to submit to Library of Congress' Veterans Project.
  • Participate in community events such as Walk a Mile in a Child's Shoes or Beads for Brits.
  • Other miscellaneous roles-cooking, photography, helping with social media, landscaping, playing musical instruments-the list goes on!

Even if you don't see what you're looking for-contact us and tell us what you want. We will help you find a place in our organization where you will feel happy, useful, and make a real difference.

Where Will I Volunteer?
