I am a current adult student completing the required academic course work by the BACB; however, to fulfill the 1500 fieldwork hours, I need is a practicum site and a supervisor.

I work during the day. That is why I am willing to volunteer after 5 p.m. during the week and anytime on the weekends. I live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I prefer not to have to quite my day job since I am a single parent, but I will, if I have to.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Great question and there are so many rewards to giving back and helping others. The coronavirus has definitely created huge amounts of stress in our local communities, nation and worldwide, although volunteering right now looks very different with social distancing limitation. I work for Fannie Mae and we devote a week, yearly (7 Days to SERVE) to SERVE in addition to the 10yrs a month each employee can volunteer. For the 7 Days to SERVE event, we typically volunteer for events that allow us to physically helping in the community; building, repairing, serving food, packing food, making blankets, making school age snack bags, working at food pantries and food banks, etc. The volunteer opportunities within my company are one of the many things I love about Fannie Mae. For the 7 Days of SERVE this year - It is all Virtual! In fact, responding to questions on Career Village is one of our virtual opportunities this year. In addition, Fannie Mae provided a list of additional virtual opportunities and for all of us who are willing to lend a helping hand, below are some websites were volunteers can go to help.

Good Luck and Happy Volunteering!

Hello - I encourage reaching out to your local United Way (https://unitedwaydallas.org) to inquire about volunteer work that would be applicable to your field. I've also used the site Volunteermatch.org that has a great filtering tool so that you can put in your time frame, volunteer interests, location, etc. I also wonder if your school has suggestions on where to volunteer. Hope that helps!
