School Holiday Program


The Townsville Hospital Foundation is well known for its large number of volunteers who provided assistance and help in various area and departments around The Townsville Hospital. During the school holidays, we would like to invite students in Years 11 & 12, to join our Volunteer Team and experience what it is like to be a part of the “Sunshine Staff”. Not only will the students gain valuable experience that they will be able to transfer into the workforce or further studies, but they will also learn the importance of giving back to their community and how it feels to truly make a difference.

While participating in the program, students will be paired with our current volunteers who will act as their buddy throughout their four-hour shift. Buddies will mentor the students and explain the role they fulfil as a volunteer.

Students will have the opportunity to experience several of the volunteer services that we offer such as the Front Foyer Information Desk, the Convenience Trolley, the Cancer Clinics and the Children’s Ward.

Please note that the student volunteering program has been suspended for the Easter 2020 holidays. Please submit applications for future sessions. Download the Application Form below and return by email to:
