Volunteer Opportunities For High School Students

Katrina Said:

What are some volunteer opportunities in the Carmel, Indiana area?

We Answered:

The Carmel Clay Public Library has a volunteer program for teens.

From their web site:
"To join the Teen Volunteer Corps, you must fill out a Teen Volunteer Corps Application. Pick one up at the Young Adult Services desk on the 2nd floor of the library. The application requires a parent's signature and the name of another adult reference."

Christopher Said:

Any volunteer opportunities in different countries for the summer?

We Answered:

You can check out the following sites... I am sure that one will fit your offer of service.
Look under ways to help. You may need a parent or guardian to go with you tho as most offers of service out of country require you to be 18.
Church groups are different so check out your local churches.
Scouts has lots of volunteer opportunities too... some are out of country as well.. These may be more in keeping with what you want to accomplish and there would be youth your age on your journey.
Best of luck to you!

How can I prepare myself for Medical School if I am currently a high school sophomore?

We Answered:

First of all, I would put a lot of weight on the subjects like biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics -but it doesn't mean that other subjects aren't important. English reading and comprehension are very important. When you go to college, go with a program for pre-med students. If you majored in biology in college, that could be very helpful later on. In order to get into a medical school, you surely will need to have a pretty good score on the MCAT. You could look into that right now. The more time you spend on preparing for it, the better.

The volunteer opportunities will be very useful for your personal statement/resume writing, although they don't have to be strictly medical. Assisting in psychological research could be useful as well. Maybe being an assistant at a medical laboratory could work? Also, a lot of colleges have health clinics, very often they are short-staffed, so you could try to apply for an internship with them? When you go to college, you may try to be an intern for one of the pharmaceutical companies like GSK or Pfizer. That could really stand out.

Since you're a sophomore in high school, I presume you are not 18 yet. It may be slightly hard to find internships and such, so you should wait until you're 18, although if anything "comes across", then you shouldn't hesitate.

Good luck!
