School Holiday Program


The Townsville Hospital Foundation is well known for it’s large number of volunteers who provide assistance and help in various areas and departments around The Townsville Hospital. These school holidays we would like to invite students 16 yrs and older to join our Volunteer Team and experience what it’s like to be a “Yellow Shirt”. Not only will the students gain valuable experience that they will be able to transfer into the workforce or further study, but they will also learn the importance of humility and how it feels to truly make a difference.

While participating in the program Students will be paired with one of our current volunteers who will act as their buddy throughout the 4hr Shift. Buddies will coordinate on the job training and explain the volunteer role they do on a weekly basis.

Students also have the opportunity to try all of the volunteer services that we provide including Hospital Enquiries, Convenience Trolley and support services in the Cancer Clinics and Children’s Ward.
