The Little Neck-Douglaston Community Ambulance Corps offers area youths the opportunity to get involved and serve their community. Any young adult between the ages of 15 and 18 years old can join the Ambulance Corps as
youth Corps member.
Members of the Youth Corps receive free CPR and ambulance training.
Youth Corps typically volunteer for one four-hour shift per week, serving as either riders or dispatchers. Riding Youth Corps members act as an assistant to the Emergency Medical Technicians on the ambulance. Dispatching Youth Corps members learn to effectively communicate with callers on the phone, as well as the ambulance crew on the radio.
The Youth Corps affords young adults with the opportunity to learn, grow, and mature outside the high school classroom. It strives to instill a sense of civic responsibility, as well as an understanding of the medical field.
