Hi Carol,

My name is Marvin and I use to work as a clinical coordinator for outpatient rehabilitation in a large community hospital based in Long Island. Our center offered outpatient services for adult and pediatric speech, occupational and physical therapy. Part of my duties included managing the student volunteer program for our department. Our volunteer program included high school students wanting to get exposure to the field, college students needing hours for their PT/OT application and adults wanting a change in their careers. My advice to you is to check the different websites of local hospitals, SNF and outpatient clinics if they offer a volunteer program. Get in touch with them to schedule an interview or orientation and you would be directed to a point person that you will report to .


Good luck with the process.


Marvin
