Philanthropies/Organizations to be involved with

1 Feb

As  student and eventually professional, you’ll want to be associated with some organizations or charities. These will most likely have some relation to your field; such as, if you’re a doctor you might join Doctors Without Borders, or if you’re studying Political Science you are probably involved with Student Government. There’s many possibilities for you to get involved with, whether you want to volunteer some of your time or simply become more educated about your field/community. Here’s  a list of possible ones you might want to be involved with as a future/ current SLP. 🙂  I’ve listed them under “Semi-Mandatory” for ones you will need to join, or most likely should join, and then “Optional” for those you don’t need but can do based on your interests and intentions.

SEMI-MANDATORY:

-ASHA ( American Speech-Language-Hearing Assoc.) – for SLPs, Audiologists and Speech/Hearing Scientists

-NSSLHA (National Student Speech-Language and Hearing Assoc.)- for undergrad/grad students studying CSD/SLP.

** there is a national chapter, and probably a local one at your school

OPTIONAL:

-Linguistics, Psychology or language club. These are all related to SLP

-Volunteer Clubs (ie. Project Sunshine, Circle K, etc)

-Special Olympics

-Tutoring/mentoring program, like AmericaReads or JumpStart

-Non-profits for Apraxia, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Veteran Services, Operation Smile other diseases related to SLP

-Participate in walks for Apraxia, Autism…

-Multicultural club/organization

-state NSSLHA/ ASHA

-charities for speech, behavioral, mental disorders

This isn’t an extensive list, just some ideas that came to mind… if you can think of any more, let me know! 🙂 I’ll certainly add them and give credit!
