About Triangle Impact
Triangle Impact connects residents of the Triangle to rewarding volunteer opportunities with community agencies throughout the region. By developing and coordinating projects that are scheduled on nights and weekends and can be completed in just a few hours, we make meaningful community involvement possible for even the busiest individual.
We believe everyone has time to care. That's why we focus on short-term, hands on projects that make volunteering accessible, guilt-free and fun. Through Triangle Impact, individuals have the flexibility to volunteer on their own terms, while partnering agencies can always depend on a corps of dedicated volunteers.
Triangle Impact is committed to making volunteering possible for everyone. Triangle Impact is different from other volunteer organizations because we meet the needs of modern citizens by guiding the entire service experience, beginning with recruitment, moving through project management, and finally, addressing retention and recognition.

Volunteering at Rex Healthcare
Rex VolunTEEN Program
The VolunTEEN program at Rex provides an opportunity to learn, the possibility to share and the chance to care. Members of the AFTER SCHOOL and SUMMER VolunTEEN programs are given the opportunity to work in a variety of positions that provide an important contribution to the care of our patients and guests at Rex Healthcare. Each VolunTEEN will be provided with a number of tools to help him/her develop successfully as a volunteer.
VolunTEEN program facts and requirements:
• Rex Healthcare's VolunTEEN Program is a structured program designed to provide teens ages 14 (as of August 1 for after-school program; as of May 1 for 10-week summer program) and above with opportunities to contribute to his/her community in a setting that might stimulate interest in a medical career. In addition, the program provides teenagers with practical experience and practice in developing good work habits as well as allowing the teens to make unique contributions to the healthcare team.
• VolunTEEN assignments are based on information provided by the teen during the interview process and may include areas such as patient care units, day care, Recovery Room, office support assignments and more. Teens accepted in the summer program will receive an assignment for the scheduled ten weeks. Teens accepted in the After-School program will be assinged a position for the entire academic school year (September -- May).
• Members of the VolunTEEN staff are required to volunteer one day per week, Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. during the after school program. During the summer, students work one day a week for a four hour shift. In keeping with our goal to promote good work habits, teens are required to report to work on time as scheduled with planned absences, including vacations scheduled well in advance. Teens will be required to make up missed workdays.
• VolunTEENS are not allowed to leave the hospital campus during work shifts without written permission from their parents or guardians.
• VolunTEENS are not allowed to smoke while volunteering at Rex.
• In keeping with our positive and professional staff image, VolunTEENS are required to wear a uniform that consists of a burgundy golf shirt embroidered with the Rex logo, khaki long pants and Rex ID badge. Denim and shorts are not allowed.
• Rex Healthcare's policy on family members working together prohibits teens whose parents work at Rex to be assigned to areas where their parents would have supervisory responsibilities for them or for work performed by the VolunTEEN staff member.

Youths Volunteering with Parents or Legal Guardians (Adult/Youth Teams)
Parent/youth volunteering is fun and rewarding and a great way to spend time together! We encourage this as an ongoing volunteering opportunity.
The adult (Parent/Guardian) will be responsible for doing the volunteer task and youth may assist. The adult is responsible for attending the new volunteer orientation session. While your child may assist you and share in the experience of working with the animals, please remember that the adult volunteer is responsible for the task and the animal(s) being handled.
Please understand that many of these animals are not easily handled, and for the child’s safety, he/she cannot be the responsible party when handling animals or be expected to make quick and experienced judgment calls. Thank you for understanding why we impose these limitations.
Fun Opportunities for Adult/Youth teams are:
Dog Butler & Referee (1)
Canine Housekeeper (1)
Puppy Matchmaking (2)
Puppy Butler & PC Puppy (2)
Cat Butler & Kitten Keeper (2)
Cat Matchmaking (2)
Cat Convalescent Care (1)
Cat Cage Butler (1)
Bunny Buddy (2)
Only one child at a time may attend with an adult on specific tasks (1). Other tasks are approved for up to two children between 7 and 17 years to accompany the adult (2). We appreciate that your priority is the safety of the child; and having more than 2 children with you will draw your attention away from focusing on the volunteer task you are performing and safety of the animal or the public could be compromised.
