Volunteer Opportunity for Graduate Students

Resource RoomGraduate students can do good, and get a good deal, by volunteering in the Resource Room for Persons with Disabilities at the APA convention, Aug. 7-10.

APA waives convention registration fees for student volunteers who work six to eight hours on a given day in the resource room.

The resource room, coordinated by APA’s Disabilities Issues in Psychology Office, is an annual fixture at the convention. Convention attendees with disabilities and those with chronic or medical health conditions, can use the room for rest and relaxation; assistance with hotel or convention information; access to the convention program using screen reading software; loan of wheelchairs and canes; and help from volunteers.

Graduate students who wish to volunteer can fill out an online application. Applicants will be contacted within two weeks to discuss scheduling and confirm participation.
