Our Junior Volunteers are young adults who give their time to help throughout our hospitals while still in high school. We are so grateful for their service and proud of the many ways we see them grow and develop into the future leaders of healthcare and our community.
North Memorial Health Hospital Junior Volunteer Scholarship Winners
The scholarship program at North Memorial Health Hospital was originally founded with a gift from the Hospital Auxiliary to support young adult volunteers. Though the Auxiliary is no longer active today, the legacy of their generosity lives on through the accomplishment of these exceptional volunteers.
Arreh, North Memorial Health Hospital Junior Volunteer Scholar
“I would continue to volunteer at North Memorial as it would help me to make a difference in the lives of others by supporting improved education, health, and overall well-being of communities, providing an inclusive environment that embraces diversity.”
Shivani, North Memorial Health Hospital Junior Volunteer Scholar
“Ever since I was little, I’ve dreamed of being a healthcare professional, but I was always unsure of whether I could do it. I feel like volunteering has given me the self-confidence to recognize that I have what it takes to be a healthcare professional.”
Gayle Stegeman Memorial Scholarship Winners – Maple Grove Hospital
The Gayle Stegeman Memorial Scholarship, the junior volunteer scholarship program at Maple Grove Hospital, was created in 2018 to honor the memory of our beloved gift shop manager, Gayle. While Gayle dreamed of becoming a doctor, she was unable to pay for medical school. Instead, she found her own unique way to support our hospital and the health of our community through our gift shop and was an inspiration to many throughout the hospital, both patients and team members.

Rithvik—Gayle Stegeman Memorial Scholar
“Volunteering has given me a sense of purpose and fulfillment that will continue to expand. The patient-companion experience at MGH gave me my greatest gift: fostering relationships and spreading compassion.”
