Become a Saint Therese Volunteer
Let's get started.
Volunteers from all walks of life enhance the lives of our residents on a daily basis. Whether you are a student with volunteer hours to fill or an adult who enjoys spending time with seniors and wants to give back to the community, we have many different opportunities to fit your interests and availability.
Volunteers must be 15 years of age or older and able to commit to a regular schedule of volunteering (weekly, bi-weekly or monthly). Due to the time investment and cost of background checks, we ask that volunteers commit to a minimum of 30 hours per year. Group volunteering opportunities are available for those younger than 15 years old. Submit an online application for your preferred location (see below) and you will be contacted by the Volunteer Services department to discuss opportunities and next steps. All volunteers are required to complete an interview, application, orientation and a criminal background check with fingerprinting (state required).
Saint Therese welcomes group volunteers; work groups, youth groups, confirmation groups, retirement groups, etc. Volunteer groups make a tremendous contribution to our residents in fun and meaningful ways such as providing musical entertainment, assisting with parties or other special events, helping with happy hours, or assisting with activities and games (bingo anyone?). For one-time group volunteer opportunities, please complete and submit the “Group Volunteer” application below. You will then be contacted by a representative of the Volunteer Services department to discuss opportunities and next steps. Due to the planning involved in implementing group activities with residents, we ask that all groups interested in volunteering with Saint Therese submit an application a minimum of two weeks prior to the desired service date.
Therapy Shadowing Opportunities
Saint Therese welcomes therapy students seeking opportunities to shadow physical, occupational or speech therapists as part of their school program requirements. Please complete and submit the Saint Therese Rehab (STR) application below.
For those seeking internship opportunities, please submit a volunteer application for your preferred location. You will be able to note an internship interest on the application and will be contacted by a representative of the Volunteer Services department to discuss opportunities and next steps.
