The junior volunteer program requires students maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 and commit to one year of volunteering at the hospital. They learn responsibility as they gain experience and confidence for the future.
Scholarship recipients are chosen based on their GPA, school and community activities, awards and honors, quality of their essay depicting their goals for the future and their performance while volunteering at Doctors Medical Center. They must also volunteer at least 200 hours per calendar year to be considered.
The Service League also donated $12,000 to Modesto Junior College and $12,000 to Stanislaus State for their medical and nursing programs.
Doctors Medical Center typically accepts adult volunteers throughout the year and junior volunteers twice a year. However, due to COVID-19, the volunteer program is on hold until further notice.
