Students Thoughtfully Serving Hinsdale

Our UChicago Medicine AdventHealth Hinsdale Junior Board fosters goodwill in the community. Created in 2006, this volunteer program helps high school students learn, grow and serve while building community awareness for our Hinsdale hospital.

Each school year, more than 100 students come together to learn about the hospital and build friendships with peers. Through this faith-based program, junior board members grow in leadership, participate in service projects and volunteer to support our community. A membership drive to join the Junior Board is held every summer.

    Service Projects

    At Hinsdale Family Residency Medical Center (HFMC), the junior board members manage a diaper and wipe drive for families in need who seek medical care at HFMC — many of whom are single mothers. In 2022, we collected more than 150 packages of diapers and wipes.

    Additionally, our junior board donated $25,000 to our hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit renovation in 2022.

    Students appointed to the executive committee grow in leadership development. At this level, members learn event planning and strategy, how to manage volunteers and how to run meetings.
