Volunteering at NSPT
Volunteering at NSPT is a great opportunity to learn more about various therapies and see them in action! While assisting the clinic with various responsibilities, volunteers gain valuable insight into the day-to-day operations of a clinic.
We pride ourselves on our company culture which radiates positivity. You are encouraged to watch our culture video to learn more here.
Volunteers are expected to have a professional attitude and appearance. Clothing that is comfortable and professional is highly encouraged. No denim clothing or flip flops please.
While volunteering, students can obtain observation hours. We currently allow a maximum of 10 hours in total. Some clinics are able to provide more, but 10 hours of time is not guaranteed.
Volunteer requests get very busy during summer, spring, and winter breaks. Please reach out 3 weeks in advance to check on availability.

Volunteer Experience Reviews
I chose NSPT because I volunteered with Katie Hesch from the Evanston location in the summer of 2016 and had such an incredible experience. I was still deciding whether or not I would want to pursue speech pathology and it was my experience with NSPT that helped make the decision to continue with my studies. NSPT was incredibly professional, caring, and personable. Volunteering as a perspective student was very eye-opening for me; it was wonderful to be able to see first-hand the hard work and creativity that went into the practice as well as the real impact it has on patients. Now that I am enrolled in courses, I would like to return to NSPT to better understand the real-world application of my studies in an environment I know provides excellent care.
