VOLUNTEERING

"I had an incredibly enriching experience volunteering at OTTP, which ultimately solidified my interest in pursuing pediatric OT. Learning from various OTs in diverse settings and communities was so valuable. Each OT modeled for me the importance of positive relationship building; empowerment through both connection and autonomy; and creative thinking and problem-solving. Every practitioner fostered a collaborative and mutually supportive environment, treating each other and each youth with compassion, respect, and care. Particularly meaningful to me was also the opportunity to be an active participant in clinical meetings, where practitioners, interns, and volunteers all touched based to share research and experiences in order to collectively brainstorm." - Elizabeth Bowers
