Students from Bay Area high schools and universities can make a difference while learning valuable job skills by participating in UCSF Medical Center's Summer Student Program.

Volunteers in this program must be at least 14 years of age and attend an orientation in June. The minimum commitment is for four hours per week for eight weeks in June, July or August.

The orientation for volunteers at Mount Zion will be Monday, June 10, from 2 to 5 p.m. in Herbst Hall at 1600 Divisadero St. Orientation sessions for volunteers at Parnassus are scheduled for Tuesday, June 4, from 9 a.m. to noon for college students; and Thursday, June 13, from 2 to 5 p.m. for high school students age 14 to 17. Both Parnassus orientations will be held in the auditorium in the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute at 401 Parnassus Ave.
