Young volunteers big summertime hit at The Views in Comox

The Summer Youth Program in The Views at St. Joseph’s Hospital included 22 students between the ages of 13 and 18.

The Summer Youth Program in The Views at St. Joseph’s Hospital included 22 students between the ages of 13 and 18.

They were involved in assisting residents with various activities such as games, picnic outings, gardening, giving manicures and visiting. Many friendships were made throughout the eight weeks between the generations.

The financial support of the St. Joseph’s Hospital Auxiliary and Canada Service Summer Employment Program made it possible.

The Youth Volunteer Program will commence once again in the fall. Interested returning or new volunteers are encouraged to contact Pat Allan, manager of volunteer services, at pat.allan@sjghcomox.ca or Brenda Phillips, director of resident lifestyles and community programs, at Brenda.phillips@viha.ca.
