Student Volunteers at Allegheny General Hospital

Volunteering is a wonderful way to explore the health-care field before investing a lot of time and money in education. Try it out and see if you like it first – it may surprise you!

Each year at AGH, hundreds of high school and college students share a sincere interest in helping others by volunteering their time and talent for the benefit of AGH patients. At the same time, volunteers reap the rewards of an experience of a lifetime.
