Young volunteers learn about KershawHeath

Why would more than a dozen teen and college students spend a portion of their summer vacation volunteering at KershawHealth medical center? For some -- especially younger students -- it's a chance to gain valuable work experience. Others are looking for opportunities that can help give life to a medical school applicant's personal statement, or add valuable "points" to school or scholarship applications to give them a competitive edge. For most, though, it's the opportunity to learn more about healthcare and to get that all-important insider's view of the industry.

However, when it comes time for me to ante up cash, I can come up with a million reasons why I can't afford it.
