Student Opportunities

Students volunteering for credit at their respective institutions must commit to a full semester of volunteering.  Most academic institutions require a minimum amount of patient contact in order to be considered for academic credit.   Therefore, not all of the opportunities listed above qualify for receiving credit at your respective institution.   Additionally, orientation must be completed in the semester prior to your volunteer start date to avoid any delays in fulfilling your hourly requirements. If you are interested in becoming a student volunteer, please fill out a student application. 

For more information regarding student opportunities, please contact the Volunteer Office at (518) 562-7595 or email
