Are you interested in working with kids who have type 1 diabetes and learning more about diabetes management? If so, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) has a volunteer opportunity for you! Join us for ADA Camp Sealth on Vashon Island, which is taking place this year from Monday, July 31 to Saturday, August 5. The ADA camp is the only diabetes camp in the country that’s integrated into a traditional summer camp, so our campers can attend with their family and friends without diabetes! The ADA’s role is to manage all of the medical care for the campers with diabetes so they can focus on having fun at summer camp.
We have two volunteer roles for students: medical assistants and diabetes counselors. Medical assistants help campers with testing their blood sugar before meals and bedtime, treat low blood sugars, and fill in for other staff as needed. We ask that medical assistants plan to attend camp for at least three days and two nights. Diabetes counselors are assigned to a specific cabin and accompany their campers on activities throughout the week to help with diabetes management. We ask that these volunteers attend camp for the whole week.
Room and board is provided for all volunteers. No prior experience is needed, as there will be training before camp to teach you everything you need to know!
If you’re interested in volunteering at camp, please contact Kelsey Stefanik-Guizlo by June 15 at kstefanikguizlo.
My name is Brianna Sweeney and I am a current student at Shoreline. I’m also a lead aide and yoga teacher at Experience Momentum, a wellness center in Lynnwood that offers therapy, fitness, and nutrition.
We have a wonderful volunteer program in our physical therapy department and are currently looking for Spring volunteers. Our volunteer program lasts 10 weeks (one quarter) and consists of one 3-4 hour shift per week that includes one-on-one time directly with a patient/therapist and some facility maintenance.
If you’d like more information about our program, see the link below and don’t hesitate to ask!
I am writing regarding a possible Volunteer opportunity for Shoreline Community College students seeking out the pharmacy profession. Currently, we have a few volunteer positions open in the Outpatient Pharmacy here at Seattle Children’s Hospital. A Washington State Pharmacy Assistant license is required along with an application process through our volunteer office. You can contact me with any questions. Thank you for your time and energy.
