Candy Striper Convener
The Candy Striper/Cadet program is open to girls and boys between the ages of 14 – 18 who are attending school.
Volunteering in a hospital can be a very rewarding experience. As well as the satisfaction you receive from helping others, you may also gain insights into the medical field as a possible career choice.
The Powell River Health-Care Auxiliary offers scholarships to candy striper/cadets who meet the requirements.
You must attend all orientation and training sessions, and accept your assignments in good faith. We ask for a 50 hour commitment per year. You should realize, volunteering is rewarding, but it is work!
Interviews will be arranged with you on a one to one basis with the Convener. A parent/guardian must accompany you to this interview. It is mandatory you and your parent attend this interview session before you are eligible to join the Candy Striper/Cadet program.
The program runs from September to June. There is a $15.00 fee for your uniform which is required to be paid on the day of the interview. Payment must be made by cheque to the Powell River Health-Care Auxiliary. This cheque will be returned to you when you return the uniform.
You can pick up a complete application/information package from our Gift Shop in the hospital, or you can print out the application on line, and turn the completed application into the Gift Shop.
