Due to the immense interest in our Gainesville VolunTEEN program, not all applicants that apply will be accepted. Our summer program has limited placement opportunities.

This program is only for UF Heath Gainesville. If interested in volunteering at UF Health Jacksonville, please call (904) 244-4271 or visit as that program is managed separately.

Please complete the VolunTEEN application process in the following order:

Step 3: Invitation to complete remaining requirements

After attending the Information Session, you will be invited to complete the remaining VolunTEEN application requirements. Details and additional information will be provided at the information session.
