Observers & Volunteers

Volunteer Program

TheraTree's Volunteer Program is designed for individual's to gain experience within the various divisions of our company.

High school students considering going to college to study occupational therapy OR college students completing per-requisites to enter OT/OTA Programs are ideal candidates for the Volunteer Program. Collegiate programs typically will require a set number of observation hours and additional associated paperwork as part of their collegiate program application process.

At this level of interaction, volunteers accepted observe skilled treatment sessions (with client parent permission), interact with clients at the discretion of the therapy provider, and may compete additional tasks within the volunteer such as cleaning, copying, shredding etc.

Individuals looking to contribute to the Owensboro community are also idea candidates for this program. Volunteer opportunities include assistance with our events, assistance with administrative duties (great for future resumes), and direct interactions with the families and patients we serve to enhance their experience.

Individuals served by TheraTree also have the opportunity to volunteer! Volunteering is an excellent compliment to the life skills addressed in therapy. Volunteers will have the opportunity to refine their skills in a supportive and fun environment.

ALL volunteers must apply to be accepted into the volunteer program.

Individuals under 18 years must have legal guardian consent to apply for the program.

ALL individuals must be able to demonstrate a level of independent work skills under minimal supervision.
