Occasionally agencies or families contact the department with opportunities for students to provide support and practice under supervision to their clients or family members. Ask the department chairperson or your academic advisor to provide a list of current opportunities.
Other volunteer opportunities are found at local hospital rehabilitation units, extended care facilities, public schools, pre-school programs, agencies serving all ages of persons with special needs. Students who do engage in volunteer activities are urged to dress appropriately for the setting. (See clinic handbook.) Also, students are reminded that in most settings where one volunteers, confidentiality is important. (See clinic handbook for specific guidelines.)
