A speech therapy volunteer would work at the Association's clinic where at least 32 patients receive speech therapy each week. Other duties may include rural visits, as well as educational seminars for families.
Speech therapy volunteers are needed to provide speech therapy services in a variety of residential facilities, clinics and community outreach programs. While the core focus of speech therapy volunteer placements is on clinical work, there may be components of community outreach, educational programs and family training.
Many placements could benefit from speech therapy volunteers who have completed their education. However, there are several placements where volunteers would be able to contribute provided they have completed at least one year of study in their speech-language pathology program.
For current students required to complete an internship or volunteer experience, these placements are a fantastic way to complete the requirements for your speech-language pathology degree while making a valuable contribution overseas. If this is something you are interested in please let us know in your application the requirements of your institution for your placement. This way our team will be able to better decide which placements would be an appropriate fit.
