College Student Volunteer Program

This is ideal for undergraduate students looking to gain insight into their chosen careers in physical, occupational or recreational therapies in a hospital setting. We also offer limited opportunities in niche areas, including pain rehabilitation, orthopedic rehabilitation, aquatic recreational therapy and nursing.

Primary responsibilities include assisting with cleaning and organizing therapy gyms and helping to set up before and after therapy sessions.

Students are expected to volunteer on the same day each week for a 13- to 15-week session. Volunteer shifts are three-four hours long, and the average student receives 40-50 hours per session.

Student volunteers can receive an average of 10-15 observation-specific hours during his or her 40-50 hours of volunteering. However, this is not guaranteed.
