Volunteering & Employment

Volunteer Positions

We currently have several openings for Support Volunteers.

Support Volunteer Position

Time Commitment: minimum of 3 hours once a week (openings on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons)

Position Commitment: minimum of 6 months

Reporting to: Clinical Coordinator

This volunteer position was designed for those planning on applying to speech-language pathology graduate programs (or exploring this as a possible career path). This position does not necessarily provide direct clinical exposure with clients (e.g., observation of treatment sessions) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, there are sometimes opportunities for this when an unfamiliar communication partner is required for therapy (e.g., stuttering treatment) and/or it is safe to do so with distancing and the client's consent. Right now, our volunteers are primarily providing office support and thus gaining exposure to a clinical setting, these aspects of service provision, and gaining time with speech-language pathologists to discuss the field.

 

Requirements

  • recent (within 3 months) police record with vulnerable sector check (electronic record or paper copy is acceptable)

  • resume (recommend maximum of 2 pages)

  • no cover letter is required

  • excellent oral and written communication skills

  • intention to apply to a speech-language pathology graduate program (or currently exploring this field as a potential career path)

  • completed or enrolled in a university program in a related field (e.g., psychology, linguistics, neuroscience)

  • we will consider high school students in their final year with a reference letter / call from a teacher attesting to the student’s preparedness for volunteering in a clinical setting

  • proficiency with Microsoft Word for the purpose of creating materials using tables and clipart (some training can be provided)

  • flexibility and reliability

  • ability to take direction, work collaboratively, and work independently

  • attention to detail

  • discretion and commitment to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of clients

  • wearing of professional dress appropriate to the office

  • compliance with the use of personal protective equipment as per Public Health
